Last year saw the biggest increase in billionaires in history, one more every
two days, states Oxfam in a shocking report.
Billionaires saw their wealth increase by $762bn in 12 months. This
huge increase could have ended global extreme poverty seven times over.
82% of all wealth created in the last year went to the top 1%, while the bottom
50% saw no increase at all.
Dangerous, poorly paid work for the many is supporting extreme wealth for
the few. Women are in the worst work, and almost all the super-rich are men.
Governments must create a more equal society by prioritizing ordinary
workers and small-scale food producers instead of the rich and powerful.
