Global Wealth

The richest 1% of the world’s population are getting wealthier,
owning more than 48% of global wealth

Mother Nature always so wise provides equality for all beings :
there is not a being richer than other , a duck richer than another duck ,
a fish that has accumulated more wealth than other fish etc etc etc.
Something very wrong happened in the middle of our trails .

I would like to know the result of this immense inequality in the future .
We live really tough times .
