Wealthiest One Percent About to be Richer Than Rest of World Combined {VIDEO}

20 dollar bills 

*In a story truly based on the phrase the rich get richer, a U.K.-based charity says the wealthiest one percent will own more than the rest of us combined by next year.

Oxfam International’s study released Monday morning ahead of the World Economic Forum in Davos showed the world’s global elite increased their share of wealth from 44 percent in 2009 to 48 percent last year, a number Oxfam’s executive director called “simply staggering.”

Oxfam executive director Winnie Byanyima stressed prolific lobbying, especially in the U.S., has sent public dollars to special interests instead of benefitting the whole population. (Video via USAID) “Extreme inequality isn’t just a moral wrong. It undermines economic growth and it threatens the private sector’s bottom line.”

The numbers are, of course, controversial. If you believe narrowing the wealth gap makes for a stronger economy, these findings are troubling. If you believe in the trickle-down theory of the wealthy stimulating growth and prosperity, you probably think the numbers are misleading.
This is the same group that attended the World Economic Forum last year and tried to spur debate on economic inequality saying the 85 richest people in the world have as much wealth as the bottom half of the world’s population.

Lmfaooooooooo conscious 1... this s*** is so funny because of the simple and PLAIN fact that he has the AUDACITY to manifest on and on and on about how everyone who disagrees with him is somehow sad and unfulfilled in their life and whining about it. How blatantly DUMB do you have to be to not only miss the point, but just continue on and on as if the person who spews the most words (in or out of correct order) is the one who is right. Or is the one who wins rather. This is obviously some type of game to him. Not only has he totally missed everyone's points, but nothing he says has a damn thing to do with the original post!!!!!!!!!!!! And btw.... A little info on his basic mindset, 1 stroke enjoys bragging on the fact that he likes to remain single and does not wish to be in a relationship because he enjoys sleeping with other men's wives too much. This will be my last post on this list cause, but big up Mike K, Vinny P, and conscious1, oh, can't forget Ivan Butcher II, cuz he came on here, broke it down, didn't even pay attention to the bullshit, and bounced!! Thanks for you guys insight and intellectual convo!!!! (And being the type of person that is really REAL, I have to admit that the comment about Ivan was maybe inspired by the fact that I might be feeling a little guilty for feeding in to the bullshit). Juss keepin it real. ☺️

Lol, lol, lol...I knew this would be funny. It's like this dude, 1stroke, can't comment without continually interjecting the presumption that everyone else on CF has less than him. A misconception shrouded in his strong sense of materialism and the need to be, lol, lol. The funny thing is HE FAILS TO REALIZE THAT THIS IS SOCIAL MEDIA. No one commenter knows who they are talking to or is talking about. Yet this fool makes comments about others based on his blind ignorance as if it's, lol, lol. TALK ABOUT SOMEONE IN DESPARATE NEED OF VALIDATION TO THE POINT OF FABRICATING HIS OWN TRUTH. IDK, but his actions and statements now seems more like a PSYCHOSIS.....sheesh..smh...Lol, lol, lol

Mike k look at it like this i cme from an environment where there was little and few opportunities which many black folks came from but i didnt let stop me i have a family who refuse to hide behind excuses and told me never to take no for an answer and how i could be what ever i wanted the choice was mine, at the end of the day i walked away from my environment and took all knowledge went to school and got a little bit of more knowledge i made sure i work hard while i was younger and now still young im not about to stop, yes i want it i dont care about who wants to sit on their asses, every one made their choices, i was never afraid to take risk, so do you think i would ever listen to you or any one else who is being judgmental on how i gain success i realize in this generation a lot of older folks are bitter like someone stop them from making the right choice, so trust me i have to plan to stop, so if you dont believe me just watch me im sorry bro your life is what you make it, i can help the few people i cant but i cannot help the world, typing about how we should help the world is not important if you want to make a different get up and make it and let me know how i can join the helping process and if it does i will join and by the way the rest of those other bums on here dont matter i know how people can be mad when they cannot stop some of us lol you dont believe me just watch me in 2015 ill even get higher its not a game and i have not time to play if it aint about growth we have nothing to talk about
