Analysis of a recent Oxfam study which revealed the 62 individuals have more wealth than the poorest 3.5 billion combined has concluded that the 62 also work longer and harder.

Rigorous mathematical analysis has determined that the wealthiest 62 are working more than 140 billion hours a week to sustain their wealth.

The figure of 140 billion hours was arrived at by Stubhill News’ Chief Back-of-the-Envelope Math correspondent Barry Manilow.

“The maths was really quite simple,” gloated Manilow. “First you take 3.5 billion, then multiply it by 40 hours and voila! That’s the number to beat. It’s the only thing that makes sense.”

The amount of hours they are obviously working seems to raise the question of how they manage to fit more time into a week than exists, but there is an obvious answer to that question.

“In order to work that much, they must be manipulating space-time,” tweeted Neil deGrasse Tyson.
