Our planet has always been an unequal place. The bottom staggering 70% of the global population controls just 3% of global wealth. Compare that to the eight wealthiest people who’s wealth combined equals the bottom 47% of the population of the entire planet. Despite what you might have heard, the top 1% isn’t as wealthy as it might seem, you only need to have a net worth of 770 thousand dollars, and you can consider yourself “The 1 Percent”.

Those who are buying these mega yachts and flying private jets are the ones who are at the top of that 1%- The billionaire club.
