: I can't understand how some people revel in the apparent increase in the amount of wealth people.

Who was revelling? And why would it be bad? it usually means an increase in the total wealth of the world.

: I relative terms it's the opposite that's happening I mean would anyone suggest that the more millionaires there are the less poor there are going to be?

Yes they would. Millionaires dont become so by taking money and giving nothing in return (right, lets exempt crooks and recipients of government largesse). If you make money - you literally are making the wealth associated with it. Wealth is not a static pot.

: For someone to acquire wealthy status, power, elite position etc. there must always be someone in non-wealthy status, subordinate, common position.

relatively. hmmmm.
