1% of the Population Owns 40% of the World's Wealth

I never really know what to say when I read a statistic like that. It's just so mind-bogglingly criminal, I'm not sure where to start.

its criminal - call the cops and have the 1% arrested - if we need bigger prisons - build them!

How about starting with Liberal politicians you endorse who go hand in hand with that statistic?

I'd have to check, but I think the stat is even worse for Canada.

Wealth concentration is one of the reasons I support dropping the Monarchy. I also support an inheritance tax (like in the USA and Japan). I think it is nuts that people can inherit a billion dollars and not pay a dime in income tax.
