Global Affluence & Deprivation Are Connected

As taken from IDS @ Trent University's Professor  Haroon Akram-Lodhi:

In our world, the 225 richest people have a combined wealth of more than US$1 trillion, equal to the annual income of almost half of the world's total population.

Cellular telephony in Canada is an oligopoly, Bell, Telus and Rogers control 94% of the market, charging high prices for poor service. In the 2000's the late Ted Rogers was the 2nd richest man in Canada worth almost 8 billion dollars. Mike Lazaridis and Jim Balsille had a combined wealth of almost 9 billion.

The worst war of the 2nd half of the 20th century (in the Congo) has been fought in part over the coltan (ingredient found in every single cell phone). Our ignorance has contributed to death and deprivation on a biblical scale. We need to understand our world.
