Visualizing The World's Rich

Tyler Durden's picture

We hear a lot about billionaires, millionaires, and 250,000-aires but just where are all these tax-dodging blood-suckers skulking and just how many trips to Space on Virgin Galactic can the Top 25 Wealthiest people take per day?... Everything you wanted to know about the uber-wealthy is one simple mega-infographic.

Not a lot of chicks on the list and the few there are seem to have inherited Daddies money.

Equality really works don't it?

(Biden 2016 Still crazy after all these years)

Money is honey soney, and a rich man's joke is always funny.

Interesting that Alaska is its own country now, with much less GDP/person than the USofA.   Who put that graphic together?  Sarah Palin?

I noticed that as well. They're doing worse that Russia. Maybe they can be sold back. Everything must go.

Racist world map is racist.

Sentience is good. I noticed that from a brief perusal of your bio. It's pretty much a requirement here. And not a lizard which is also good.

Not racist, just forward-looking...

chicks don't want to earn money because growing wealth takes saving money.


they want to marry money and spend it.


also guys tend to be at extremes in IQ and wealth due to competition, while chicks are socialists who want average for all.

You can marry more money in 20 minutes than you can make in a lifetime.

Ahead of them:

Crime lords. At least 10 in the world.

Money launderers. Another 10 or so.

Bankers receiving off balance printed cash. Dozens.

All elite banking families. 4-5 families, hundreds of people.



UP4Liberty's picture

Please cite 4 - 5 family names.

stewie's picture

Rothschild, Rockefeller, Morgan, Lazard, Warburg, Schroder and Schiff.  

This is where the real wealth is concentrated, much more so than in the list above.

They basically control the banking cartel so nobody really knows how much wealth they have accumulated over the centuries.  The Rothschild family alone is worth tens of trillions.

If the wealth of those 7 family were distributed evently, that would solve all the financial problems in the world several times over.  

There's not a lot of them.

Ok lets go. What are their addresses?

Not as a challenge, but do you have stats?  I'd be interested.

I have read some insightful stuff you have written Aldo. I have also read some stupid shit you have written...but this one takes the cake. Eff you and your generalizations. 

Don't hate the player....

Considering the majority are entrepreneurs I dnon't think there's a barrier to 'chicks' inventing facebook or starting a retail giant.

Hipsters on food stamps They're young, they're broke, and they pay for organic salmon with government subsidies. Got a problem with that?

(Biden 2016, SMOKIN!)

AldousHuxley's picture

that's why food stamps are bad.

all welfare shoudl be direct with actual products. Give hipsters surplus corn and military grade beef stew.

BraveSirRobin's picture

Yum... military grade beef stew.

youngman's picture

You know if you did that..set up distribution centers with those products.....the people that worked there would be very no one would come and get it...not high enough quality for the 47%

Spastica Rex's picture

Yeah, I eat beans and buckwheat.

I hope you're capturing all that surplus energy you are creating with that diet.

Did you guys see the one about top most interconnected companies in the world?

Based on study's criteria there is a core of 1318 companies and 147 super-entities.

Urban Redneck's picture

It's called institutional money management.

Besides Gates and the bailed out Buffoon I wonder who else on the list hides their Billions in Tax Exempt Charities? 

The Tax Exempt Charity scam will continue too as they say the ROTTEN apple doesn't fall far from the tree...

Buffett's kids use dad's ideas to invest in giving


Urban Redneck's picture

I don't know about that list but it is a favorite tactic of 3rd world despots, cabinet ministers, and senior executives of SOEs- Libya being the most recent example receiving widespread coverage.

AldousHuxley's picture

it's called private profit motivated banking when it should be a public utility since everyone uses currency.

I see the flaw immediately.  They are counting shares held in Street name as shares owned by the investment banks.  


The way it works is you are a customer of Goldman Sachs.  Fine.  As a brokerage client, you hold shares in IBM.  Okay.  Your shares don't show up as being owned by you.  Goldman holds the shares in its name and give you credit for owning them internally, on its stock record.  

Not because you dont own the shares, you do.  But for companies to keep track of all the owners, on a daily basis, is beyond their abilities.  That's what brokerage houses know how to do.

The research is based on a simple open secret that every 2 year analyst learns in their first 6 weeks.

More than one among us can quote the Bible:

Deuteronomy 23:10
If there is someone among you who is impure because of some nocturnal emission, he must leave the camp; he may not reenter it immediately.

AldousHuxley's picture

It is easier for a rich man to brainwash poor camel brained people about concept of reward in afterlife in heaven via religious welfare than have poor people turn into an angry mob and kill rich man for their exploitation of labor.


if you want to get rich....

1) stop believing in heaven

2) steal from  rich

"Behold I send you out as sheep among wolves, therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves."  The rich have their reward.

Well, there was Marx's soundbite about opium and religion, but I prefer Napoleon's straight-talking version: "Religion is what keeps the poor from murdering the rich."

Deuteronomy 23:19 "Thou shalt not lend upon usury to thy brother; usury of money, usury of victuals, usury of any thing that is lent upon usury."

Wait, I thought Jews wrote the Bible?

Something happened between Moses' authoring of this text and today. Hmmm..
