I heard Thom mention that a UK company was buying up all the lobbying forms regardless of political leanings. Does anyone recall the name of that company?

Who Should an Economy Serve?

The top one percent own half of all the world's assets. In stark contrast, the bottom fifty percent of the world owns less than one percent.

The report explains that while global wealth has more than doubled since the year 2000, the vast majority of overall growth has gone to those who were already wealthy.
