Richest 62 People Have More than Half of the World Combined

The wealthiest 62 people now own as much as the combined wealth of half the world's population, some 3.5 billion people.

Hopefully as hierarchies start to fall, we will see a great change in that condition. People who want to build hierarchies continue to ways to be successful, at least financially.

According to Oxfam, since 2010, the wealth of the poorest 3.5 billion fell 41 percent, while the wealth of the richest 62 people has risen by 44 percent.
