Exclusive: Thoughts from the enlightened

If capitalism is concentrating the wealth in the hands of the few, why do stock markets exist.

Can't a person with limited means purchase the ownership of companies and become part of the system (and if they pick wisely, they can make more money).

Since there are some many poor people, why can't they all pool their limited resources and buy back what was supposedly taken from them. If all the poor people in the world took what little money they left over at the end of the day, and purchase stocks in many of the worlds stock markets, what would happen?

Instead of giving poor people food and clean water, maybe the IMF should consider giving them a stock account with dividends, so that they can buy all the clean water and food they want, that would free up their time to live life of a socialist.
