Just 8 men own same wealth as half the world.

It's like most people don't think about the consequences when they use Microsoft Windows and Apple products, when they go to Walmart, when they don't boycott companies that lack social responsibility, when they vote for corrupt politicians, etc.

Of course we also have to take into account:
· The financial/banking system (based on debt slavery, compound interests, etc).
· Patents (that is, monopolies granted by the state so corporate predators can hijack technologies that otherwise could be used to produce new cheaper products, medicines... all over the world).
· Tax havens and loopholes.
· Corporate welfare.
· Corruption, insider trading, etc.
