While this is fun to know....

...I'm wondering what the point is? The Koch brothers failed at dethroning Obama lending support to the notion that even their fast wealth couldn't buy as much political influence as many think. In any case, the title is misleading, "Half of the World's riches people", that makes me think the article was going to show how 200 people were related and they all got this much money somehow. The half that this article is talking about is mainly just the heirs to Walmart. If that is part of some conspiracy or something, it is news to me.

Free market capitalism isn't right for America because it works better. It's right because it's free (and it works better).
