Every few months for the last couple of years, a new story pops up declaring the “official” wealth gap — the one most public sources will admit to — is getting wider and wider at a faster and faster rate.
This is the real economic crisis.
The wealth gap in America, for example, is insane these days.
Check out this fresh report from Nation of Change (an ironic name considering the topic):
Just 10 percent of Americans own 91 percent of the nation’s stocks and mutual funds, according to economist Edward Wolff (Table 7). Most of the remainder is held by a “middle class” that is steadily losing ground. The bottom 60 percent is almost entirely shut out (Table 2).
Stock owners, some of whom made billions of dollars last year, can defer their income taxes indefinitely, pay a reduced capital gains tax when they decide to cash in, or pass on the capital gains tax-free to their heirs…
$2 of every $5 owned today was created in the last five years, most of it from the financial markets, and almost all of it going to the richest 10 percent.
Unfathomably, the richest 1 percent took anywhere from 95 percent to 116 percent of the new income gains after the recession. Yes, 116 percent, because almost everyone else went backwards. Median wealth dropped about 40 percent from 2007 to 2013.
And it just keeps getting worse. Remember that big report that came out last year about how the 85 richest people in the world — only 85 people — own as much wealth as the bottom 3.5 BILLION poorest? This isn’t set up to let more people get in the club fake American dream style either. Only people who are still asleep believe that.
No, the elite are closing ranks. The report about the 85 versus 3.5 billion came out in January 2014. It was quickly followed up by a new report just a couple months later that it was down to a mere 67 people… sixty-seven people… who own more than the bottom half of everybody in the whole entire world.
The number is likely smaller now.
But Who Are the Real Owners?
This number, as most of us have come to realize, is totally skewed anyway because no one anywhere in traditional media print wants to admit that the real owners (as George Carlin would call them) — the 0.0000001% of whatever they are — own so much wealth most of us cannot conceive of numbers that big without frying our grey brain matter like eggs on the sidewalk in Hell.
Facts like the Queen of England is truly one of the world’s richest people and the world’s largest land owner, with holdings worth approximately £17,600,000,000,000. Although an estimate is hard to truly make because she has a lot of proxies, it is estimated that woman is worth some obscene amount like $33 trillion (that’s trillion, with a ‘T’). Of course, someone did the math on that figure back in 2007, nearly a decade ago, so who knows what the number is now.
She nominally owns 6.6 billion acres of land on a planet that only has 36.8 billion acres of inhabitable land. She has so much money at this point that she has no clue what a hundred bucks means to the average human being if she ever did. This woman could literally end world poverty and hunger all by herself if she wanted to. It’s that much.
Think about that — we live in a world where one person can own 1/6 of the land on the entire planet and so much money no one would have to be poor or suffer, but hey, where’s the power in that? On an aside, did you know she controls uranium the way De Beers controls diamonds?
Speaking of De Beers, did you know that company was founded on Rothschild capital?
Who are the Rothschilds? Why, the people who own the Queen.
Yes, the Rothschilds. Now we’re talking numbers like $500 trillion. That’s half a QUADRILLION dollars. I couldn’t even begin to tell you how to visualize that in terms that make mental sense. Just know that more than half the wealth that exists on this planet, they own.
Now we’re talking about people who aren’t even on the list over at Forbes. There’s a reason. Mostly it’s because then Forbes wouldn’t have a list.
Just… watch this.
The world cannot continue this way forever. There are way more poor people than rich and the latter group is dwindling further and further all the time.
Pretty soon that huge number of poor are going to start to wonder why they can never catch a break, why they should even try… and why so few are making life-changing decisions for so many based on their immense wealth. People like Bill Gates with all his vaccines and population control agenda, Warren Buffett with his smart grid enslavement, George Soros buying civil unrest by the millions, and Michael Bloomberg buying gun control come immediately to mind.
More and more people are going to start to wonder who owns them… and why… and how do they ever get truly free from this utterly corrupt world order system?
