Imbalance of Wealthy vs. Poor

NewsACCESS Innovation

The wealthiest 20% of the world’s population own 74% of the world's wealth. The poorest 20% only owns 2%. If money is power, then clearly there's an imbalance here.

The standard world poverty line is $1.08 a day, that's it. What do you think of this? Do you think that the wealthy portion of the world, including North Americans, would be willing to sacrifice some of their luxuries to balance it out for the rest of the world's people?

Share your thoughts... remember, we're spending millions of dollars a year on MP3 players, you'd think we could take some away to help those dying around the world.
