Your Global Ruling Class

Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls of all ages, here is your global ruling class......

Globally, the number of people falling into the $1 million or more category grew by 6.5 per cent, with more and more individuals from the emerging markets of China, India and Russia boosting the total. Altogether, the estimated 8.7 million individuals worldwide in this wealth bracket have net total assets of $33.3 trillion, an increase of 8.5 per cent on 2004’s figure.

The super-rich, those with $30 million or more, grew at an even faster pace in 2005 — 10.2 per cent. There are 85,400 of them worldwide. Britons lead world in race to be rich

Race to be rich, more like s*** floats.

The rich and the super rich, remain a minority of parasites living off the backs of millions.

This is the trickle down economy, lifting all boats as they say. Except that the majority of us are in overcrowded life boats while these folks are on the cruise ship.

Rich get even richer in third world

Dubai, the capitalist dream on steroids

How many of us were there again oh yeah 6 billion.

So why are these guys still in charge? Because we haven't organized!
