How much of half the world’s wealth did the top 1% themselves, (on their own or after paying their helpers their fair share) create? My answer is, a minuscule proportion, closer to 0% than 100%. They are the takers, taking from rest of us what they did not create.
I would not have a problem with the top 1% owning half the world’s wealth if they, acting alone, created half the world’s wealth - then they could say they deserved it.
The vast bulk of their wealth is redistributed wealth from others or of from nature (which they did not create).
A major consequence of this is that the middle class standard of living is limited the capacity to pay for that which can be created, rather than the capacity to create it. Supply side economics is a fraud: Supply is not the problem: it is the capacity to pay that imposes the limits the peoples’ standard fo living - all for uber riches at the top. An equitable distribution of the fruits of production would remove this limit, so that we could all prosper, limited only by our capacity to produce.
