Not surprisingly but also sadly it takes a Nobel prize winning MIT professor named Robert Solow, or a previously mentioned Thomas Piketty, to warn you for the obvious future in which the very very few will rule the many. It of course was never any different (I mean: ever wondered who owns all the printed money and landmass?) but lately it is becoming abundantly blatant.
Why do you think the media addressed the recent Powerball lottery with a jackpot of more than a billion? I have my doubts that amount will in fact be paid to someone but besides that it is the term billionaire that sticks. Every amount less doesn't count these days.
Yet there is more than enough money to end poverty overnight when redistributed differently and with the mindset that poverty is a disgrace to mankind.

Matthew 19:23-24King James Version (KJV)
23 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.

I can't stress enough that these lists of so called wealthiest, like in Forbes (owned by whom?), only mention the LEAST POOR in terms of FIAT currency or assets obtained/purchased (however NOT owned mind you) with it.
To understand who the REAL wealthiest are one obviously first needs to understand the ABSOLUTE definition of wealth, not the beautiful LIE version of it. Hint: there is no fiat currency involved although... the absolute wealthiest DO OWN ALL the 'money' that ever came into existence.
