In April this year I wrote a blog entitled “David and Goliath”, subtitled “People and the Oligarchs”. Today I looked up the Forbes statistics. It was yet another record year for women on the new Forbes list of the World’s Billionaires. Of a total 1,826, up from 1,645 in 2014 billionaires, 197 are women, (up from 172 in 2014). That’s a nice gain, although women still account for just a small percentage of the list—11% of the total.
Still. The rich are getting richer.
When you read my book, the “Pluto Effect”, you’ll have to decide whether it is good or bad. For women, I mean.
It is worth noting that together, the billionaires own, or control, an aggregate net worth of $7.05 trillion, up from $6.4 trillion a year ago. Now you can’t take that to the bank, but you can buy a few banks with it.
In addition, according to a report by New World Wealth, there are 167,000 people worldwide worth $30 million.
Population of the world is 7.3 billion.
That’s us. Over 6,000,000 of us. The ‘poor’ folk.
Guess who makes the decisions. Guess what makes them gods. There are the Many and the Few. We are the Many, if we count at all.
Below my prediction to where all of the above will lead us. It is a novel, yet, I should warn you, a number of my predictions had a pesky habit of coming true within very few years.
Please, read the intro to my book:
“Under the influence of Pluto, the world order is on the brink of total collapse. As hordes of frustrated people take over, the governments are no longer able to govern. Simon and Ambrosia find themselves drawn into international intrigues. Simon is desperately trying to make sense of the prevailing conditions. Even as our heroes escape to their beloved Greek Island Milos, all hell breaks loose.
It is well established among the students of the Zodiac, that the Age of Aquarius is initiated by the influence of Pluto, the ruler of the underground in Greek myths. In the Zodiac he also plays another role. He is the god who prepares Earth and humanity for the New Age, by eradicating the old to make room for the new.
Those who know about the ancient prophecies will escape with their lives. Those who do not… will have to face the consequences, which will change mother Earth forever, or for at least the next 2000 years.”
Read it carefully.
It might save your life.
PS. Remember it’s a Trilogy. You might enjoy it more is you start with Wall—Love, Sex, and Immortality. .
