Most of you already know that capitalists have, in the short run, profited from COVID.
But these statistics are good arguments for those in your network who think that “capitalists are suffering too”. Since the beginning of the pandemic, a new billionnaire has been created every 26 hours. The richest ten people have doubled their fortunes. The number of deaths from COVID around the world is now approaching the total number of World War II deaths. Capitalists will pay for this in the long run, but they are too myopic to see it coming and too incompetent to do anything about it if they did see it coming.
