“In the United States, wealth is highly concentrated in a relatively few hands. As of 2004, the top 1% of households (the upper class) owned 34.3% of all privately held wealth, and the next 19% (the managerial, professional, and small business stratum) had 50.3%, which means that just 20% of the people owned a remarkable 85%, leaving only 15% of the wealth for the bottom 80% (wage and salary workers)”(1)

"We can have a system better than capitalism or we can have a system that is worse than capitalism. The only thing we can't have is a capitalist system."(4)

“2% of the adults in the world have more than half the world's wealth, the richest 5% per cent have 71% of the wealth, the top 10% have 85% of the wealth...The bottom 50% has less than 1% of the wealth. ”
