40 Year Itch : Sixteen Families

Future Billionaires Bill Gates and Paul Allen in 1975

    From the disappointing Survival comes the O'Jays shoulda-been monster hit "Rich Getting Richer" which was actually never released as a single. Probably because it sounds like a call for revolution:

There's only sixteen families that control the whole world...
People like the Mellons, the Gettys, the DuPonts, the Rockefellers, Howard Hughes

    In the 1970's the top one percent earned about eight percent of all the income. Ridiculous right? 

   That's not the case anymore.
