"By almost any measure, the world is better than it has ever been"(Billy Gates, Slumdog Billunaire)
From: Credit Suisse 2013 Global Wealth Report (My notations in red)
"inequality remains high, with the top 10% of the world population owning 86% of global wealth, compared to barely 1% for the bottom half of all adults."
It's not that the system is not "working" it's that it is working for fewer and fewer people. The original victims of globalization were all at the base of the pyramid. They had no voice, no representation. They don't exist. Nobody gave a damn, except a few protesters at WTO conferences. It was sales at Walmart all around.
And the "plan" to change the system, is called "Maintain the status quo"TM
Which is why collapse is both necessary and inevitable.
So. Plan accordingly.
