Smokey got it right.

Most of it never existed.

There is a difference between stock shares / property values etc and real money. Most of the "listed wealth" cannot be turned into beer tokens. It can only exist on a balance sheet.

In terms of the real money; most of it was, before the banks squandered it for us (and turned it into balance sheet money), in the hands of those who worked hard, saved a little and lived within their means.

Not the sort of people Robin Hood should be visiting , methinks? I didn't know old green tights supported the idea of something for nothing...
