If everyone in the world gave everyone else 1 penny, everyone would be a millionaire, poverty and hunger wiped out. Why don't we do this?

Everyone would be a multi-millionaire.  Homelessness, poverty, and hunger would all be gone.

    As there is 7.8 billion people, you need to find a lot of pennies!

    This type of pyramid scheme is what landed Bernie Madoff in prison, hiding behind anonymous.  Are you sure you want to go there?

    Let us think higher, if people like Oprah gave one dollar to each person in the United States,... Black or White, or any race for that matter wouldn’t that be considered Socialism?

    If everyone gave one penny then all of us would get only that in return.

    Nobody would have any more money that they do now, because they'd give as much money as they received.  They have to use all the pennies they received for giving the pennies to everyone else, so they wouldn't have any left.

    No because the pennies would just be passed around.

    This is not mathematically sensible. There are about 7.8 billion people in the world. To give everyone US$0.01 would cost $78 million dollars. If everyone gave me $0.01 I would have the $78 million to give away, and would have nothing left.

    Nobody ends up with anything except what they started with.
