What do YOU think?



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.


That's pretty good. I never thought of it that way. No one will do the jobs that is usually done by the poor.

But if we're all equal, who's going to do the jobs that were done by the poor? Let's say a poor man is now as equally rich as Bill Gates, who would do the job of the poor?

Yes, you are right! One world, one dream.
Can global wealth be distributed equally or evenly?
Yes, in your dream.


Yes, it will only happen in our dreams.

Just because we are all equal in wealth, doesn't make us equal everywhene. Some of us are stronger, some of us are smarter, some of us will get rich again, some of us will get rich for the first time and most of us will get poor.

Yes, but there are jobs that the rich wouldn't do. For example, dishwashing. Let's say that everyone is equal in terms of money. That means they are equal in stature. The person who used to wash dishes as a job wouldn't want to do it anymore. Since he's equally as rich as everyone, why would he settle for a lesser job? He'll probably just start his own business. No one would want to go back to doing blue collar jobs.

Two points shall be made clear before we go on:
1. What is wealth?(money, stocks, women, diamond, property, cars,land, oil paintings, etc)
2. How evenly is really evenly? (geographically, per capita, by sex, by age, by country, or what else....)
Please define them, otherwise all is hot air.

Then how they would eat? Everyone will wash its dishes until the weak and the unlucky ones go bankruptcy.

The whole idea of re-distribution the global wealth is absolutely preposterous. Firstly, the adverb 'evenly' every human beeing is tend to understand on his own way. And you may notice that right here, in this thread, one says evenly poor, others - evenly rich. Secondly, seeing someone richer than you is a huge stimulus to an ambitious, educated person, but for an ignorant lowbrow it's like blood in the water that causes revolutions. Working hard on a field that is becoming to your abilities, knowledge and education, besides if it's evenly(!) paid, - I suppose this is the key issue.

I'm convinced that the current people who, as you say, do the lower jobs like washing dishes or cleaning the streets - the job that surely must be more respected, suffer from that white collars that provide the financial bubble of unsupported by manufacturing bulk of money.

A better strategy to do is get back wealth that was accumulated illegally. Like for the Philippines, a lot of our wealth was taken by our ex President Marcos and his wife and is in a Swiss bank. We should get it back. The same applies for other countries.

I think it would be better to say that the first world countries have a moral obligation to help out those in need. After all, we're in just one world.

By redistributing the global wealth evenly I understand the global amount of money / number of humans.
If it's much or not, I don't know, but I supposed it's medium.

Still, the fact remains that it's logistically impossible. It may sounds as if a noble cause, but down the line, it would affect the check and balance of the world.

It's hard to answer on this question, because on the one hand global wealth should be re-distributed evenly, because lots of people waste their money on useless things, and at the same time the other people in another poor countries are hungry. But on the second hand the rich who were educating for a long time should have a luxury life as though they could waste their money , it's their issue, because of fairness. The were working hard as an ant to to live better. I think that the rich should decide if their wealth is re-distributed or not. the poor should trying to find a job instead of waiting for benefits for unemployment.

I think that global wealth shouldn't be re-distributed evenly. There are a lot of advantages but I think that the biggest disadvantage is that there are a lot of bad people who will use this money for bad intentions.

No, i think its a really bad idea, evryone has a different goals. Someone work hard day after day but someone is lazy and dont want to achive great things. So wealth depends on everyone and shouldnt be re-distributed.

I suppose, that global wealth shouldn't be re-disturbed evenly, because this is bad idea. On the world are different people. Some people work, some people are lazy and they don't want to do something useful. The idea would be unjust. But on the other hand this situation would be great for poor people, who want to work for better life, but they live in poor country.

I thinkt that global wealth shouldn't be re-disturbed evenly, because it is not a good idea. People who are rich, work really hard to make the money and some people want to be rich but they don't want to work. It isn't fair. But on the other hand people from slumsy would be very happy to change them life!

I think globad wealth shouldn't be re-distributed evenly. Every rich person worked really hard for make money. They spent a lot of time to reach succes. On the same time lazy people didn't do anything. It is not fair to give them money for doing nothing.

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 amount 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.

I think it isn't possible to global wealth be re-distributed evenly. It's normal that some people are very rich, some poor. In my opinion one group of people should be poorer that the second group can be rich.

It could be fair but the world is not fair. As far as im concerned global wealth shouldnt be re-distributed evenly. It is a very ambiguous thesis. However, I think that it is not true in every sense.

In my opinion global wealth shouldn't be re-distributed evenly, because it would destroy the existing economy. Especially it would destroy people. Money changes man for worse man. The world could go mad. I don't want it.
