Jan 19 - Richest 1% own more than TWICE as much wealth as 6.9 billion people - Oxfam

A super-rich one percent of the world’s population has accumulated twice as much wealth as the remaining 90 percent, global charity Oxfam said in a newly-released report.
The gap between the obscenely rich and the rest of humanity has reached grotesque proportions, according to the annual report by Oxfam, published on Monday on the eve of the World Economic Forum in Davos.

The new report, ‘Time to Care’, which focuses on the largely unpaid care work many women and girls take upon themselves, says that the world’s top 22 richest men have now more wealth than all the women in Africa.

There are only 2,153 billionaires in the world, according to the report, but their wealth matches that of more than 4.6 billion people, or about 62 percent of the world’s population, estimated to stand at 7.7 billion. The gap between the wealthy and all those who fare less well looks even more prominent if to compare the combined income of the richest of the rich – the top one percent – to that of some 6.9 billion people. According to the report, the one-percenters boast more twice as much wealth as nearly 90 percent of the global population.

The charity, which has consistently been arguing that the only way to tackle inequality is to raise taxes, said that taxing additional 0.5 percent of wealth of the top 1 percent over the next decade will provide governments with enough funds to create 117 million of jobs in health, education, elderly care and other sectors.

this was made by some feminist group

he report also noted gender disparities in the world economy. For example, it found the 22 richest men in the world have more wealth than all the women in Africa. The report said that women and girls put in 12.5 billion hours of unpaid care work each and every day around the globe —a contribution to the global economy of at least $10.8 trillion a year, more than three times the size of the global tech industry.
“Women and girls are among those who benefit least from today’s economic system. They spend billions of hours cooking, cleaning and caring for children and the elderly. Unpaid care work is the ‘hidden engine’ that keeps the wheels of our economies, businesses and societies moving. It is driven by women who often have little time to get an education, earn a decent living or have a say in how our societies are run, and who are therefore trapped at the bottom of the economy,” added Behar.


this man surprisingly ceos of the group

This reminds me of the movie 2012. The one percent live while the other 99% die because they did not know what the one percent knew.

No single entity or person can define "wealth".

Take the concept of wealth away.

1% are smarter than the other 6.9billion.

But what does that mean? Those people are still intelligent enough to do great things and live great lives. They don't need the 1% to be less smart for that.

Movie is A LOT deeper than most people think. Not only does it address the wealth gap, but it goes into healthcare, and the lengths they will go to in order maintain superiority over the working class.

This. Between that and the movie They Live. Real life sh*t that takes place and people either choose to ignore it or are too dumb to see it.

Oh, so they all gained their wealth on their own while they were alive? Dominating the globe in one generation huh? I guess I can’t be critical of anything.

Real question:

How much money do you personally need to not care how much is in a billionaires portfolio?
