I meant something like "The wealth, in absolute magnitude, of those
who are presently called 'the poor' far exceeds the wealth of those who
were called 'the poor' in earlier times...(and some who weren't)"

Such is the English language: that would have been clearer and less
ambiguous is Lojban, but far less poetic. I'm not above using
deliberate ambiguity for rhetorical effect now and then; I don't
think I was trying to be deceptive.
