According to an article in The Guardian, an English newspaper, “The world’s eight richest billionaires control the same wealth between them as the poorest half of the globe’s population, according to a charity warning of an ever-increasing and dangerous concentration of wealth.” Such is the nonsense that’s been swallowed hook, line and sinker by the Liberals of the American Left.

“In a report published to coincide with the start of the week-long World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Oxfam said it was “beyond grotesque” that a handful of rich men headed by the Microsoft founder Bill Gates are worth $426bn (£350bn), equivalent to the wealth of 3.6 billion people.”

Wealth is beyond grotesque? Liberal, Leftist propaganda. Their wrong idea that there’s something wrong with wealth is “Nonsense on a stick.”
The extraordinary individual wealth they typify comes from the free market so it’s no surprise six of he eight are Americans who live in America. Bill Gates is the richest. He owns stuff worth $75 billion. Trump, as rich and as successful as he is didn’t make the list of the top eight billionaires but Trump is on the list of billionaires. Forbes lists him as #324, worth $4.5 billion. Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys football team is worth $5.2 billion. Jeffrey Lurie, owner of the Philadelphia Eagles is worth $1.8 billion. 

Forbes compiled a list that shows there are 1,846 billionaires in the world. America has 547, about 30% of the total and America is the country with the highest number of billionaires, followed by: ready for this? Followed by China with 13 % of the billionaires. China has 240 billionaires. Russia has only 89.

The so called eight have a net worth of $537 billion dollars. An astrophysicist calculated The Earth is worth $5 quadrillion dollars. $537 billion is an astonishingly small part of the net worth of the world. To the poor people it shows the enormous potential and the great possibility they have to become wealthy. The first thing they need to do is learn to count their wealth.
