50 for the 1%: Richest Motherfuckers own half the Planet

richkids„Schöner“ Meilenstein: Laut einer heute veröffentlichten Studie von Oxfam gehört den reichsten 1% ab 2016 rund die Hälfte des Vermögens auf diesem Planeten, womit sie dann endlich den Pöbel hinter sich lassen. Den reichsten Motherfuckern gehört dann mehr, als dem ganzen restlichen 99%-Proletariat. Zeit für Champagnerduschen an der Wall Street!

The richest 1 percent are likely to control more than half of the globe’s total wealth by next year, the charity Oxfam reported in a study released on Monday. […]

The 80 wealthiest people in the world altogether own $1.9 trillion, the report found, nearly the same amount shared by the 3.5 billion people who occupy the bottom half of the world’s income scale. (Last year, it took 85 billionaires to equal that figure.) And the richest 1 percent of the population, who number in the millions, control nearly half of the world’s total wealth, a share that is also increasing.
