Hhhm..that's a tough one. Logistically, I don't think that's possible. For starters, there is no governing body that has control over all the countries so it would be tough to do. Besides, I believe that all first world countries would be opposed to the idea. You can't blame them though. They've worked hard in order to provide for their country.

Besides, they do their part by extending aid to those who needs it. :)

It's an unreachable and senseless event. It's not fair to take someone's wealth just because he/she has more than other one. If one works harder than another, it's obvious that he/she deserves more money. Of course, there are lot of cases when the gifted one hardly lives with the ammount of money he/she has and a fool can buy his/her entire village. This isn't very fair neither, but you can't make justice with an injustice.

^Hi, I see that you want to be corrected if there are mistakes in your post. I hope you don't mind. :)

It's an unreachable and senseless event.


You should use a different word instead of event. You can use something like strategy or something like that.

It's not fair to take someone's wealth just because he/she has more than other one


It should be he/she has more than the other one.

If one works harder than another


If one works harder than the other

ammount of money


amount of money

This isn't very fair neither


This isn't very fair either

Overall, your post is very good. The thought is there and it was very understandable. Keep up the good work!

The problem with the other countries is they sometimes ask too much and if it wasn't given, the rich countries are targeted as bad guys.

Thanks a lot for correcting me. I wasn't expecting that someone would really take his/her time to correct me but looks like I was wrong.

You're welcome. It's actually good that you are encouraging people to correct you. It pays off to welcome constructive criticisms. You're going to be more vigilant that way. Besides, we're here to learn and we need all the help we can get.

A more logical thing to do is to take care of a global wealth that we have been disregarding - our environment. If we take care of our environment as a whole, then the whole world will benefit from this global wealth.

Let's think about consequences. First of all, it is a crisis in every segments of economy. If everyone will be rich, then nobody will work. We will have a lot of money, but there will be nothing to buy because no one goes to a factory, office, etc. and does daily job.

But redistributing the global wealth evenly doesn't mean we would all be rich. We could be just moderate. So we still need to work to get rich or at least, to survive.

Remember the theme of Beijing Olympics of 2008?
Yes, you are right! One world, one dream.
Can global wealth be distributed equally or evenly?
Yes, in your dream.
