The Biggest Transfer of Wealth in World History Part 1

The stock market crash caused by the pandemic was the largest transfer of wealth in the history of the world. That wealth went exactly the oppossite of how most people (99.99%) should want it. It went directly from the bottom to the top. As I write, Trump and the...
