“Addressing Wealth Inequality with Financial Literacy.”
The distribution of wealth is based on the owners of assets. Since 1980 the gap in wealth has grown exponentially. The concentration of the ownership of assets has also grown exponentially. Consequently few have much and many have little.
Financial literacy is the missing element inhibiting the widespread ownership of assets. This is my objective with the target group being “Never Investors”, those not financially savvy and yet the drivers of growing economies.
With simplicity, transparency and affordability my mission is to allow everyone to profit from a growing economy. The idea is to break down the barriers, which until now has been a part of a viable system for the wealthiest of society.
