Someone who has amassed money and property worth over US $1,000,000,000.

A billionaire has amassed money and property worth over US $1,000,000,000. The American oil magnate John D. Rockefeller became the world's first confirmed billionaire in 1916. During the 2010s, there were over 2000 billionaires worldwide, with a combined wealth of US$9.1 trillion.[1] Only 10% of them were female during the 2010s.[2]


The Ranks of Global Billionaires: Not All Billionaires Are Made Equal

There is a question that is asked, and over and over again answered in the same way.[3] That if money can, or can not buy everything. But even if happiness and friendship can not be bought, this type of approach leads astray from a fundamental problem. Kings and emperors of yesteryear have on the surface been replaced by new overlords and some may again not be the nicest people. Excessive amounts of money in the hands of a very few is a problem and everything that can be bought, will be.[4][5]

List of Billionaires

Lists and reporting on the world's richest people by The Economist, Forbes and others obscures the fact, that old banking families, some aristocratic families and the catholic church do have much, much more money - hidden from public view and obscured through offshore secrecy jurisdictions and other means.[6][7]

The United States has the largest number of billionaires of any country, with 536 as of 2015, while China, India and Russia are home to to half or even less than 20% of that.[8]


How billionaires benefit from "stealth politics"

Hedonic adaptation is the concept that explains how people - even billionaires - with increasing money get no satisfaction with the increased satisfaction because of the simultaneous rise in expectations.[9]

Princeton University researchers in 2010 released a study that argued happiness increased based on income up to around $75,000 and doesn't increase with income after that.[10]


Many billionaires use their wealth solely to increase it, by employing handlers and buying influence in party politics. Since the 2010s, the use non-profit to donate to politicians they want in power.[11] Many billionaires for example overlap with ISGPs super-class index.[12]


The billionaire class: a threat to democracy? - DW

Trilateral Commission member and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg spend more than $1,100,000,000,000 in the primary elections of the Democratic party for the US 2020 election. In just 4 months, he spend more than Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and 3 times more than any other billionaire running.[13]

After facing scrutiny for calling transgenders "some guys in dresses[14]"; saying African Americans should be "thrown up against a wall and frisked" if "they don't have any long term focus"; saying he put police in all poor neighbourhoods with non-white majorities because "that's where all the crime is", Bloomberg received criticism for being out of touch and "racist by Donald Trump. Bloomberg went further with his 4 month list of shenanigans, with the The Intercept revealing female prison inmates calling California citizens on behalf of his campaign for $7,25 per hour[15]; his campaign leaders being suspended by Twitter for running "Sock puppets" and astroturfing with "multiple accounts from the same owner" and stealing posters and policy papers from NGOs and think tanks[16], Bloomberg quit 4 months later.[17]

After vowing to keep his campaign infrastructure running and offices around the country open through the general election to help defeat Trump, Bloomberg decided instead to transfer $18 million to the DNC through a transfer from his campaign, a move argued to be illegal and not adhering to the law on individual donations.[18]

Andrei Fursov“Attali analyzes history and present-day events in the light of the change of Merchant orders. The contemporary one — the ninth — is going through an extremely acute crisis, which will end with the demise of Pax Americana. Then a furcation will occur. In Attali’s view, either world government will be established at once or it will emerge as a result of a three-move process of the 2020-2060s: hyperempire (market without democracy), hyperconflict and hyperdemocracy with a supranational government at its head.

The analysis of Attali’s works shows that he expresses the interests of the top of the world capitalist class that adheres to ultra-globalist positions and works for the subversion of the sovereignty of nation-states. The terminology used by Attali, particularly “sustainable development” / “sustainable growth” (in reality, it is the combination of deindustrialization, depopulation and ecologism), indicates his neo-Malthusian and neo-colonialist preferences. “Sustainable development” is a metaphor of the new world order (à la Orwell’s Newspeak), which is nothing more than control over resources (including information ones) and human behaviour (psychosphere). The main thing in this order is the preservation of power, property and privileges of the world’s elite whose ideological representative Attali is.

Karl Marx“So long as things go well, competition effects an operating fraternity of the capitalist class, as we have seen in the case of the equalisation of the general rate of profit, so that each shares in the common loot in proportion to the size of his respective investment. But as soon as it no longer is a question of sharing profits, but of sharing losses, everyone tries to reduce his own share to a minimum and to shove it off upon another. The class, as such, must inevitably lose. How much the individual capitalist must bear of the loss, i.e., to what extent he must share in it at all, is decided by strength and cunning, and competition then becomes a fight among hostile brothers. The antagonism between each individual capitalist's interests and those of the capitalist class as a whole, then comes to the surface, just as previously the identity of these interests operated in practice through competition.”Karl Marx
