  1. The only greed I see comes from the pages of the Guardian – I want your stuff without putting in any effort. Nasty, spiteful little rag full of pernicious envy from the likes of Arwa Mahdawi.

  2. Great idea! Take that $540 Billion, less of course the vital admin fees (say 25%?), and divide it between the 7.8 Billion people on earth. What are you going to spend your $50 on?

  3. So Much For Subtlety

    Ms Mahdawi is filling that vital Stupid Woman of Colour spot at the Guardian. And she is truly stupid. She makes Jasmine Alibhai Brown look like a Nobel Prize winner.

    But I guess the Guardian has got to have at least one. Someone to make their readers feel superior to.

    In a very non-racist non-sexist way of course.

  4. KevinS, I used to use the example of Jeff Bezos $178Bn, but same thing. I’d then ask, “all the business that were funded by this money will have to close and all the employees put on the dole – now what”?

  5. The money wouldn’t be shared out between the plebs anyway would it? After the politicians had lined their pockets and the world was littered with half finished white elephant vanity projects the money would run out and the governments would have to go after the people who are just a bit too rich. How long before they have spent all of their money too and are looking over Mahdawi’s collection of jigsaw puzzles and deciding that she has more than she needs?

  6. Greed – “intense and selfish desire for something, especially wealth, power, or food”. Seems to fit Arwa’s desire for OPM and power more than someone who earned a great deal of money by serving others.

  7. “ makes Jasmine Alibhai Brown look like a Nobel Prize winner”

    Surely that’s not possible, I always thought you’d deserve a Nobel for finding sentient life that dense
