The people who “make our clothes, assemble our phones and grow our food” are being exploited to enrich corporations & the super wealthy (Oxfam)

More than $8 of every $10 of wealth created last year went to the richest 1%.

That’s according to a new report from Oxfam International, which estimates that the bottom 50% of the world’s population saw no increase in wealth.

Oxfam says the trend shows that the global economy is skewed in favor of the rich, rewarding wealth instead of work.

“The billionaire boom is not a sign of a thriving economy but a symptom of a failing economic system,” said Winnie Byanyima, executive director of Oxfam International.

Loans from thin air and how the 62 Richest People on Earth Own the Same Wealth as Half the World’s Population

“It is simply unacceptable that the poorest half of the world population owns no more than a small group of the global super-rich—so few, you could fit them all on a single coach”  … Mark Goldring, Oxfam Great Britain

This is absolute truth. Something is seriously wrong with our world when this is the state of affairs. Follow the money trail couldn’t be truer in this instance … follow the trail of the fraudulent banking industry. Your home you are paying off you will pay, it’s said, something like twice over when you tally up the interest these sharks charge you.

A Kiwi borrower buying a median-priced $416,000 home with a 20 per cent deposit on a floating 6 per cent interest rate would pay $717,965 over the life of a 30-year loan, according to Sorted’s mortgage calculator … NZ Herald

And to add insult to that injury the money they lend you is created on a computer screen, digital, and not solid gold or its equivalent in a vault out back. For more info on that visit our Money pages and/or watch the following short NZ clip (Kiwisin case you thought it was a problem ‘over there’ not here… as we do at times living down under).

Our histories and our money system are not what they seem. As the rich get richer and the poor, poorer, the cracks in this corrupt industry become more evident and obvious.
See here who owns the banks of the world (well most of them anyway) … the family infamous for this reasonably well known quote:

“Give me control over a nations currency, and I care not who makes its laws” – Baron M.A. Rothschild

The same family that boasted of funding both sides of wars to make money. The theme of the above quote by the way, is reiterated by many other notable people throughout history who cottoned on to the fraudulent activities of this group… for instance:

  “Most Americans have no real understanding of the operation of the international money lenders. The accounts of the Federal Reserve System have never been audited. It operates outside the control of Congress and manipulates the credit of the United States” — Sen. Barry Goldwater (Rep. AR)

Here is an article then that will tell you who owns the wealth … now that you know more about how they got it …

62 Richest People on Earth Own the Same Wealth as Half the World’s Population

From ecowatch.com:

“A mere 62 people own the same amount of wealth as the world’s poorest 3.6 billion people, according to an Oxfam report published on Monday. This number has fallen dramatically from 388 as recently as 2010 and 80 last year.

The report, An Economy for the 1 Percent, found that the wealth of the poorest half of the world’s population has fallen by a trillion dollars since 2010.

“This 41 percent drop has occurred despite the global population increasing by around 400 million people during that period,” Oxfam said. “Meanwhile the wealth of the richest 62 has increased by more than half a trillion dollars to $1.76 trillion.”

Using data from Credit Suisse, Oxfam also found that the richest 1 percent now has as much wealth as the rest of the world combined.

“It is simply unacceptable that the poorest half of the world population owns no more than a small group of the global super-rich—so few, you could fit them all on a single coach,” Mark Goldring, Oxfam Great Britain chief executive, said…..

The TPPA – “sets a dangerous precedent for democracy” – signed but not over yet

Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement

“For decades Oxfam has campaigned for trade rules and intellectual property standards that give poor countries a fair deal, such as protecting their right to access affordable medicines for public health. Despite mass public mobilisation against it, the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) was signed in October 2015. We believe the deal sets a dangerous precedent for democracy, transparency and future trade agreements.
“Oxfam joined a High Court case asking the New Zealand Government to release the secret text before it was signed. We also highlighted the potential harm the TPPA could bring in terms of poor people being able to access life-saving medicines, governments being accountable to the will of their people, and multinational corporations challenging government laws to protect public health and the environment.

In December 2013, 26,000 signatures were handed in, calling for release of the draft text. Then in August 2015 a petition of 100,000 signatures was delivered to Parliament.”

“The TPPA is nothing more than a power grab by overseas corporates, and delegates should actively campaign against it …” (Stephnie de Ruyter, Democrats for Social Credit)

TPPA Signing Should Be Treason

“The incredible irony is that in Greece, where former finance minister Yanis Varoufakis was putting together a monetary system to enable Greece’s collapsing economy to continue to function in the event that the European Troika threw them out of the Eurozone, he is facing charges of treason”.

“In New Zealand, where the prime minister and trade minister are willing to sign an agreement enabling overseas corporates to sue taxpayers for loss of profits, they are likely to be awarded an honour by a future government”.

If you’re not up to speed with the TPPA and what it means visit itsourfuture.org and sign up for updates. Watch this short clip also from Youtube:

We will be further in the mire as all with any insight know and have been loudly telling us for years literally. This is a Trojan Horse for the corporations and as always with the aforementioned, they veil their plans in great sounding rhetoric. ‘Good for us all’ is their cry and ‘nothing to worry about’ which, does not add up given the whole negotiation process has been BEHIND CLOSED DOORS! They wanted us not to worry about something they refused to share the details of, with those whom it will most concern. Go figure fellow Kiwis! This is just not rocket science. Corporations are about power and control of all resources so that … they can maximize their profits … bottom line. If you’re not familiar with the machinations of corporations visit the Corporations page on the site and educate yourself by watching the documentary there entitled ‘The Corporation’.  Oh, and remember, your country is a corporation.
