Chew on this one Michael Moore, and an update
From the MERRILL LYNCH AND CAPGEMINI REPORT SHARP INCREASES IN WEALTHY NORTH AMERICAN AND ASIAN INVESTORS: WORLD WEALTH REPORT SHOWS WORLD-WIDE WEALTH OF HNWIs ROSE 7.7% – REBOUND TO PRE-RECESSION LEVELS “The ranks of HNWIs in the United States stood at 2,270,000 at the end of 2003”.
Those who have read Moore’s book (and I use the word book loosely) Dude, Where’s My Country?, might remember Moore saying in his Horatio Alger chapter that the Working Class Guy can’t dream of becoming rich, because it’s not going to happen, it’s one in a million
The population of the USA is 293,595,034.
That means 1 person out of 125 people is a HNWI — High Net Worth Individual, a.k.a., millionaire, dude.
Update, June 18
