Redistributing wealth

At the United Nations' World Food Summit (Rome 1996) the UN the proposal was advanced to redistribute wealth from prosperous nations, like the USA, to impoverished countries in places like Africa, South America, and Asia.
The financial markets impose extreme punishments on countries that dare to adopt any kind of policy that could eventually result in improved living standards, as exemplified by the abrupt end to the shy redistribution policies adopted in 1981 by Mitterand in France.
