  • 70 would be nonwhite, 30 white
  • 59% of the entire world's wealth would belong to only 6 people
  • and all 6 would be citizens of the United States
  • 80 would live in substandard housing
  • 70 would be unable to read
  • 50 would suffer from malnutrition
  • 1 would be near death
  • 1 would be near birth
  • Only 1 would have a college education
