With the rise of poverty, we can definitey see what Marx preditected when he wrote about pauperization -- richer are getting richer while poorer are getting poorer; the gap between them is growing days and days. Currently, we live in a world where simulatenously, there are people who live with $2/month and others who make $100,000/sec (real fact about Jeff Bezos's wealth - he could earn an average woman/man’s lifetime salary In 5.6 sec). In that sense, being a billionaire is immoral as this disparity is absurd . Therefore, I strongly believe, as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, that being a billionaire should be forbidden. While it is their right to own and benefit from succesful businesses, they should donate or publicly reinvest their earning after a certain amount.
