here's what i don't understand

so i always here things like "lots of people live on less than a dollar a day," and what i'm wondering is if 100 years ago, when someone who had a million dollars was considered really wealthy, were those poor people people living on like 5 cents a day? and also where did all the new money come from? did one day the money makers just decided to start making more money or instead its just that there is more virtual money that doesn't exist in real spacetime? if that's the case and there's just all this fake money floating around can't someone just give it to all those people so they can have a few more 'dollars' a day and everyone would be happy? and can i have some?

obviously i know a lot about finances. people should listen to me.
