Every time someone gets into some money, he turns to some richer dude and asks him or her what to do with the money, figuring that if anybody knows how to multiply money, it would be a rich guy, right? Wrong. Rich people are the worst people on Earth to ask about money matters, unless you are richer than them. These people notoriously want to grab as much money as there is in the world, not caring that millions are famished, thirsty, dying and they still do nothing about it, quite to the contrary, they use their catastrophe to get richer, exploiting the last available penny.
There are no rich philanthropists, at least not in the true sense of the word. Do you know how much would it take to eradicate world hunger? It would take about twenty billion pounds per year. Sounds like much? Well the US have spent on their military 500 billion pounds last year alone. While you are at it, check how much would it take to eradicate poverty. It would take around 120 billion pounds per year, for the next 20 years, to eradicate poverty. Ask yourself now, is it not worth to reduce the military budget to 350 billion pounds and make the world a better place, permanently? Apparently not.
In the previous example, you could see that only the military budget of the US, reduced by less than a third, would eradicate the biggest problems the population of the planet has, without aid of any nation worldwide in any form or sense. Now think about the whole world, how much money is being used for military alone – to make it simple, it is about the double of what the US are spending. Only defence funds were counted, not GDP, not total world revenue, not all the money the richest 1% sit on. According to the statistics, the top 1 per cent hold over the half of the entire world’s wealth. Combined, they would not even notice that money missing.
You do not have to think hard to realize that the 1 per cent are not even considering eradicating world hunger or poverty, otherwise they could have done it in a minute and guess what? They would even get richer by doing it, because they would use their own companies to do all the work, providing for the money flow, increasing the value of money, ergo getting richer. The reason they are not doing it is, ironically, greed. Not that they do not want to make more money or make their money worth more. They do not want the other rich guy to have that same deal. Now think again for a second, is that the guy you wanted to ask what to do with your money?
