The probability of the existence of the Christian God

The probability of the existence of the Christian God
I thought you had some ideas about unfucking our governments, but it turns out you wanted to tell us that magic book was a crystal ball.

Not so in Australia.

This report estimates the cost of serious and
organised crime in Australia in 2020–21 to be
between $24.8b and $60.1b.

The combined wealth of Australian billionaires is
more than AU$200b.

That is only for 2 years. Multiply with 15 (for a 30 year period) or 30 (for a 60 year period) and it is fair to say that is more than the combined wealth of Australian billionaires. The wealth of legal billionaires is made over decades, the same for the illegal wealth.

There is national organized crime and transnational organized crime. I do not think that you will find how to split the transnational revenues between nations. Comparing "national" organized crime with the wealth of billionaires for a particular country, I do not think it is useful.

This sort of extrapolation is irrelevant in order to
disprove my claim, as linked to Forbes, or to let
you off the hook from responding to it.    Anyway,
that 2-year data disproves one of your major claims
in one fell swoop.

I'm sorry, but I don't have the time or inclination
to wade through a dozen linked reports in order to
find one single confirmation that organised crime
is "richer" than all the billionaires in the world".

     One link will suffice.
