You say that the six children of wallmart have as much money as the poorest 180 million in america. That does seem excessive. If wallmart have a fit of philanthropy and decide to divide that wealth up between all of the employee then those one million then have more money to do what with?
Buy more stuff, take more holidays? Live in bigger houses that cost more to heat and generally consume more? Use less public transport because they can afford to run a car?
In a world where consumption is seen as the biggest threat to our way of life, potentially our lives themselves, increasing the capacity of people to consume can only have a degenerative effect. Thoughts?
The problems of modern society, and by that I mean the west, are not that of raising the standard of living, but reducing the levels of consumption to a level where countries that are growing do not look to our opulence and desire it so much that collectively (globally) living our lives at our (western) standards will kill us all.
Love your work, keep it up!
