Re: Eight men control as much wealth as the poorest 3.6 billion people
It is a fact that these 8 people that owns almost the entire world.
But this is also a fact:
Research shows that companies own other companies, which own other companies, etc etc. If you back track you will find that only a few companies own or have a large stake in all other companies, via bulvan companies. These few companies cooperate tightly.
Could these few companies have the same owners? Why, they cooperate tightly, they have the same will and same orders. These 8 rich men, must have put their money somewhere. On the stock market? Most of a company stocks are not for sale actually. Only some percentage are publicly traded on the market. Most of the stocks are held and not traded. Check how to calculate index calculations to learn more on this.
These 8 richest people, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, etc have built their wealth in a single mans lifetime. How rich can you become, if you are an entire family striving to build your wealth for centuries? Who are the richest families? We hear about richest men top list, but how about richest families top list? It is reasonable these super rich families, if they exist, are super discrete - they dont want anyone to know how rich they are, right? Dont want to become a target. They gladly let the new billionaires get all the fame and attention, mean while they continue to rule the world.
Maybe you should google for richest families to learn more about real power. Google a bit, and read what historians say about these rich families. They try to avoid the lime light, but can not. They just shun fame, and despise everyone striving to become famous.
If you are really powerful and basically own the whole world, you dont want anyone to know that and shun fame. New poor billionaires strive for attention and are despised by the old super rich families. These families are much much much much wealthier than Bill Gates, Buffet, etc. Just google a bit.
