Examination of World Leaders

EXPOSING THE SORCERERS: Examination of World Leaders

According to The Global Wealth Report 2016 by the Credit Suisse Research Institute, the global wealth is about 256 trillion dollars and the wealth per adult was near $ 53,000.  However, the average wealth is simply dividing the entire world’s wealth by total adult population and this does not show the true median wealth per adult.  For example, the U.S. average wealth in 2015 was about $353,000 and the median was less than $50,000.   In 2015, about 33.7 million adults own more than $1 million of net worth. They make up for about 0.7 percent of global population and own about $ 113 trillion, over 45% of global wealth.   The following chart reports leaders’ wealth in comparison to their fellow citizens; and it reveals a brief look at their sources of the power and connections.  About 43 nations, almost a quarter of the world’s countries, are under monarchs.

In 2008, Nepal voted to terminate its 240-year Hindu monarchy and made King Gyanendra turn over his royal palace, which became a museum.  Nevertheless, there are still numerous monarchs worth more than $150 billion and with significant power.  Additionally, in nearly every nation, the leader is thousands of times more wealthy than the average citizen and is influenced by wealthy corporations and other rich citizens.  In 2016, Forbes listed 1,810 BILLIONAIRES with a total net worth of about $6.5 trillion (down from $7T; 2015; 1,833 billionaires).  The following Examination of World Leaders reveals corruption, unfairness and that the world is still very much under the sway of the evil one and sorcerers – who control, enslave, cause rebellion against justice and impartiality, and allow their countrymen to be bewitched.


Key: SWP = Share of World Population; SWW = Share of World Wealth/PPP (2008);

L. = Leaders; MWA = Median Wealth per Adult; P = Population (2010-15);

m = million; B = billion; T = Trillion; k = thousands; Sources at bottom; N/A = not avail.
