Minority of the population owns the majority of world wealth. How can we help shift the balance and resolve great issues? And do we need to?

In many research and wealth reports, estimates reveal that 2% of world population own around 50% of world wealth, and around 8% of world population owns more thatn 85% of world wealth.

A small shift in this paradigm might mean end of world hunger, saving troubled nations, and probably making some better use of some of the surplus. Of course, the best use of wealth would be aimed towards sustainable cycle of breaking the poverty and other issues, rather than just basic charity, a la "give the man a fishing rod, rather than some fish".

What does it take for this shift to happen? A crash course in ethics and giving (ofcourse many don't need this and are running the largest giving back organizations in the world), in how money can actually buy happiness? A policy regulation? Or just more targeted awareness campaigns that actually gets to well off and more fortunate people?

Or do we maintain the status quo?

You can't shift the balance, as the wealthy elite will not let go of their money.
