Wednesday 4 June 2008 I received an advertisement for a book from Forbes about the 400 richest people in the world. As part of the advert they showed this graph. When I look at something like this i wonder why we talk about lowering the tax on the rich. With this much wealth i would not be the least bit surprised that they could clear the debt of many of the nations of the world.
I do not have an issue with the fact that they have figured out how to do so well. My concern is that with this much wealth, one simply wonders when they will give back and help the world with some of the problems. we are facing like environmental damage, famine and poverty.
