If we took the $9.1 trillion of wealth that the 2,208 Billionaires have trapped and divided it among all 7 billion humans, everyone could have an extra $1,300. forbes.com/billionaires/#6efc5

If the 2208 Billionaires in the world dedicated all of their wealth beyond their first billion dollars to fight world hunger it would eliminate hunger for 25 years. Without relying on compound interest or other financial instruments.

Here's my math:

9.1 trillion captured wealth
-2.208 trillion for the billionaires to maintain a standard of living.
------
6.892 trillion

6.892 trillion / (0.267 trillion/year) ~= 25.8 years
