It should be clear to anyone that this crisis did not strike by chance like a force of nature. The lockdowns have worked like a charm since they starved small and medium-sized businesses and thus greatly helped to boost the wealth of the super-rich.
They have played all too well into the hands of Klaus Schwab and his wealthy supporters. Because according to this year’s Forbes list of the richest people, 660 new billionaires were minted – an increase of a staggering 30% compared to the previous year.
Amazon founder Jeff Bezos was able to gain almost 100 billion dollars and popular figure Bill Gates also gained 31 billion dollars. Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg, whose platform is now called Meta, received an additional 71 billion and other tech giants such as Larry Page and Sergey Brin (both Google) were able to grow into the double-digit billion range.
The absolute winner with an unimaginable increase of 138 billion is however Tesla boss Elon Musk.
So essentially, this “pandemic” is a money grab: The redistribution of wealth to the very rich is also in full swing thanks to the experimental gene therapy injections. At the top of the winners is co-founder and BioNTech CEO Ugur Sahin, who is now worth a whopping $13.3 billion. Close behind is Stéphane Bancel, CEO of Moderna with $12.5 billion. Numerous other pharmaceutical company executives have also benefited, as have corporate investors such as Bill Gates and suppliers such as ROVI, which produce vaccine vials.
A little curiously, supply chains were interrupted by a container ship that got stuck in the Suez Canal after a strange maneuver (the course was described as the shape of a giant penis). Shipping container prices have multiplied since then – from around $2,000 to over $9,000. The prices of raw materials rose to unimaginable high levels while gas and energy prices shot up as well. This in turn had an impact on fertilizer production and thus on food prices which will be felt only next year.
The already galloping inflation is likely to pick up even further which will benefit only those with assets.Please consider supporting by sharing or making a donation.
