    Got myself a new, interesting book to read? No wait, I have to finish that report first or else I'll get fired and have to eat moths to survive. Working from home was a mistake, I can't believe we all fell for the trap

    I'm a former libertarian.

    Milton Friedman is the best author. Very easy to read and the main is very smart.
    On the issue of the decline in poverty, what I would recommend is something about the Industrial Revolution. "The Unbound Prometheus" by David Landes is one good book.
    "But this isn't about neoliberalism"
    Yes, but it is a counter to the mainstream (but uneducated) view that colonialism is what made the West rich.

    I'm not a libertarian anymore because it leads to a corrosion in culture. Milton Friedman's views on choice doesn't work with a miseducated population.

    >Extreme poverty is defined completely arbitrarily to support somebody's personal politics
    Really makes you think

      Traditionally, the poverty line has been defined as 1$/day. If you use the 1$/day line, it is not very different from OP's graph.

      Oh wow nice argument

      This kind of comparison is kind of bad.
      A recently graduated Harvard student with an economics/finance degree who makes a lot of money in a consulting firm but who still hasn't paid his student debt would count as having zero or negative wealth. But you wouldn't call him poor.

        That's not to say there is no inequality problem.
        But the graph posted about wealth doesn't invalidate OP's graph at all and has some serious issues.

      it's funny how stupid this point looks if you just happen not to gratuitously buy in to the moral imperative that things "should" be equally distributed.

      Do you understand what net worth is?

      Those people own a lot of shares in very valuable companies but they can't really sell them in any sizeable quantity because you will have a hard time finding someone who has enough liquidity to buy those shares. There are two billion dollars in circulation but we have more than two billionaires.

        They don't need to sell shares.

          Doesn't change the fact that he can't convert his entire stock into liquidity unless he crashes it. Again, there isn't enough money in the world to do that.

          Well there might be but only for him and some other billionaire, not every single one. I'm not denying that he's rich and has access to a lot of money but to look at his 200 billion dollars net worth and treat it as if he had 200 billion in his bank is simply wrong. It is physically impossible for that to happen currently.

        Most of that changed occurred in mainland China FYI

        What do you think the big difference is between public corporate stock or government issued fiat liabilities? If someone wants to walk into a McDonalds and buy a million big macs dollars turn out not to necessarily be as liquid as you think either. "Cashing out" can end up being a problem at such scales. Converting stock to dollars at some rate where it'd cause financial instability for the elite might not be as much of a problem as you think contra issues arising from middle class boobs protecting their paper wealth in housing or whatever

        Why do you think all wealth should exist in the form of "money"? You only need so much money at any time. When you're insanely wealthy you're valuation of money is totally different.

      At the global level that inequality is largely coming from Chinese and Indian growth and US tech. Is this really something to be upset about?

    nothing better than this if you want to understand what it has actually resulted in: not just national but transnational conglomeration of the global economy under the hands of a global class of capitalist plutocrats with the help of their defense-state warhawks and glowies
