My point is, 200 years ago, almost everyone everywhere was living in extreme poverty. Now, it's nonexistent in the West and below 10% (and still dropping) in India/China/Brazil.

Anyone with more money than me is a dirty no good cheater whose wealth should be taxed.
Anyone with less money than me is a lazy, good for nothing mooch who needs to work harder and stop living off my tax dollars.

That's not to say that he shouldn't be taxed higher, or that the system shouldn't be reformed to produce more wealth and income equality (points that Bloomberg himself would agree with)... but still... he's not capable of fixing poverty alone. He couldn't even make a dent. Really the federal government is the only entity that would have any hope of doing that.
