The richest 300 people on earth have more wealth as the poorest

How is so much money flowing from poor countries to rich countries? Do you think this represents a type of economic imperialism?
What problems does this drastic wealth inequality create in the world? Do you think this is how it should be? Do you think there is anything that can be done to fix this problem? If so, what ideas you got?
