The rich get richer and the poor stay the same. This has been a fact of life in our world for a very long time now. A new study just came out that shows that 2% of the world population owns more than half of the world's wealth! That is just a staggering number and do you know what, it's not going to change. You see it really takes money to make money. These rich people have their money working for them. They invest in such things as stocks, bonds, real estate and anything else they can get their hands on. Stocks that pay dividends and bonds have guaranteed returns on investment to where there is little or no risk at all. They can just sit there and watch as their money compounds interest and rack in dividend payments and yes they can live off of just this alone. Then you have the rest of us working day to day just to pay the mortgage and other expenses and what does our government do... more tax breaks for the rich, that sure seems like it will help the average American. Isn't it time that the 98% of the population stand up for itself and demand a change? Or do you think that a small sliver of the population should be controlling the direction our world is headed?
