Something like 90% of the world's wealth is possessed by 1% of the population, meaning that it can be used to control people.

This benefits the few and not the many.

I personally think Marxism is impossible to apply today, but Marx did make some good points regarding wealth and primitive accumulation.

Just compare the pitiful salaries of millions of workers world wide to the profits made by multi-national corporations.

In Grundrisse Marx argued that through capitalism we would see 'the annihilation of space through time' as a result of the nature of capitalism; i.e. constantly evolving in the name of increased efficiency. Arguably, this has been proved correct - the advent of the jet age, the internet, developments in telecommunications as a whole and in an abstract sense the proliferation of supranational entities beyond the state that all adhere to a capitalist dominated ideology.

The exportation of labour worldwide strongly correlates with Marx's overarching ideas, too. Once workers in the UK unionised and demanded higher wages, surplus value declined and the slow process of moving labour intensive processes to countries where the the proletariat were less 'class concious' began.
