Seriously. He said in terms of net worth. Culling the bottom 20% in terms of net worth would not just take away the workers, it would wipe out civilization. According to wikipedia's article on distribution of wealth, "The bottom 95% held 28.4% of world wealth." That means you'd have a little over 5% of your population left. You wouldn't have enough people left to man power plants and run infrastructure.
