Just to remind you why we're here (I know you know it, but doesn't hurt to be reminded when you run across statistics like this).
$42.7 ×10^12 = total wealth of all 10.9 million rich people (defined as those with $1 million or more of investable assets) in the world as of 2010. Thus, the rich, 0.15% of the world's population of 7 billion, control 30.5% of all world financial assets of $140 trillion.
