Carlos Slim has reasons to smile after once again topping the list of the world's richest people.
NEW YORK (CNNMoney)
"There are a record 1,426 billionaires spread around the globe, according to the latest count from Forbes, as rising stock prices helped bring 210 new members into the exclusive 10-figure club.
...The United States once again had the most billionaires at 442, a net gain of 17 from a year ago. That compares to 386 in the Asia-Pacific region and 366 in Europe." Read the CNN Money FULL ARTICLE here.
While corporations continue to make record profits and there are more billionaires than ever in America, the American people continue to be lied to by media, political parties, and a government which is owned and controlled by that very, expanding class of the wealthy elite. Begging for crumbs from the tables of those who've profited most off of the robbery of a nation, most Americans continue to be convinced that because of some supposedly accidental "economic collapse" that we must all continue to do more for less and accept an ever decreasing quality of life with ever growing austerity measures because there's suddenly no money anymore. Looks like Forbes found it. As it turns out, all the money that our national and global economies 'accidentally lost' is in the same place it usually turns up - in the pockets of the wealthy elite.
While more Americans are living hand-to-mouth than our day's generations can ever remember, the POLITICAL FRAUD perpetrated by those with the financial power to have talked the nation into being looted over the past decade in particular, goes not just unpunished, but brazenly lauded. Not only were the smaller and more competitive banking entities set up for failure and takeover in order to consolidate markets and capital back into the hands of the very few, but the big banks were given tax-payer financed bonuses for shutting down the community's more competitive banks and foreclosing on homes that the big banks themselves bet against the odds of being successful mortgage loans. Wake up America. They're lying to us because they are the criminals responsible for the financial collapse. It was no accident.
