Interesting economic news released by Forbes in the article “The World’s Billionaires“.  The U.S. has 536 Billionaires. The interesting aspect of this news is what does it take to produce a Billionaire in this economy? There are various business accelerators and yet where do we find the Billionaire preparedness training and education to promote this development.

“The Asia-Pacific, underpinned by China and India,  had 562 billionaires, compared with 536 for the United States.  Last year, the United States had 492 members and the Asia-Pacific region had 444.

A surge in new billionaires in China was the main factor behind Asia’s big gain.   The mainland had 213 billionaires on the new list, compared with 152 in 2013. The country accounted for a nearly quarter of the world’s 290 new billionaires discovered in the past year by Forbes.

Overall, the new 2015 Forbes Billionaires List had a record 1,826 billionaires, an increase of 181 from a year earlier,” reported by Forbes.

It is time in this economic bubble that economic capacity is seen as a viable solution for creating change in the U.S. Within the 536 there are only 11 women who achieved this status. Some connected to the family of Billionaires such as WAL-MART or corporate dynasty’s like the GAP and Mars Candy. It is time to promote political and economic impact for women. Further, there are not Black women on this list – shame.

The need for equity in women goes deeper than only jobs or breaking the career ceiling but developing a platform to produce economic capacity that produces longevity and investment in other women.

Is the the U.S. a place with a culture and social capacity to produce an additional 536 Billionaires?  This focus is key to a sustainable nation.
