Dangers of sheer ignorance….

A recent and respectable poll of appropriate size and sample showed that when NZ’s were asked:

“How much of the country’s wealth is owned by the richest 1%?” the average response was “50%”

“How much should the richest 1% own?” the average response was “27%”

Now – how much does the richest 1% actually own? 10%.

Does the average NZr therefore want the top 1% to get a top up of 15% ?

Thanks to D. Farrar.
