The rich will be with us always and their numbers are increasing.

Ugly truths.

Close to thirty-four million people around the world now have a net worth of at least $1 million, up from approximately fourteen million in 2000.  Further up the pyramid, 124,000 individuals globally are worth at least $50 million. The number of billionaires has also increased. My favorite measure of extreme wealth is the price of entry to the Forbes list of the four hundred richest people in the United States. In 2015, one needed $1.7 billion to join the club, almost twice what it was ten years ago. It is also a club that excludes many: 145 billionaires in the United States missed the 2015 list because the bar was so high.
