The Economic Gap Is Widening…
Yesterday I heard an absolutely CRAZY statistic for the first time. The 85 richest people on earth, now have as much wealth as the ENTIRE BOTTOM HALF of the worlds population. In total, that elite 1% of the population control 1.7 TRILLION dollars. Where the same 1.7 trillion split between the lower half of the entire worlds population is split between three billion five hundred and twenty-three million people.
So now lets do some simple math.
1.7 trillion/85 = 20 billion… Meaning that if that wealth were distributed evenly between those 85 people on the top, each would be worth approximately 20 billion U.S dollars.
1.7 trillion/three billion five hundred and twenty-three million = … … Wait for it… … Wait… A WHOPPING $482. Meaning that if divided evenly, each individual in the lower half of the worlds population has under $500 to their names.
Or for another statistic, if everything is still divided evenly, each individual inside that elite group of 85 has FORTY MILLION TIMES more wealth than each individual in lower 1/2 of the worlds population.
Once again, The Economic Gap Is Widening…
The statistics that I shared above should shock you. Even if you were aware of a widening gap, to hear such numbers is simply dumbfounding for ones brain.
But maybe you’re more of a visual person. If so, here’s an extremely informative video about the inequality of wealth in just the US…
Again… Absolutely crazy… and again…
The Economic Gap Is Widening…
So the question must be, what are you as an individual going to do to take control of your own economic future. Another statistic from that same source stated that the ONLY THING that most of those 85 individuals have in common is that they each OWN AND OPERATE THEIR OWN BUSINESS’S. Whether it be passed down through generations of family lineage, or self started, a business is the one common denominator.
In conclusion: If you’ve read this post, and taken the time to watch the video above, you’re obviously looking to do something differently than the masses and take control of your own financial future. And for that I applaud you. You’re also most likely in the Home Business arena, and very possibly struggling to get to the level of financial freedom you’re seeking. After-all, 97% of the individuals in the Home Based Business world are struggling and never make it to the point of profit.
So… What should you do? Well that’s a discussion for another day. 😉 Over the next few blog posts I’ll give you actionable and executable plans that can and will take your business to the next level. Maybe I’ll even make it a little series… we’ll see. It’ll be good though I promise.
For now… go ahead and checkout the short video I reference to hear. It’ll educate you on what’s going on in the world, and give you an option for how to take control of your own personal future.
