The latest Oxfam inequality report, has revealed that, over the period of the pandemic, 99% of humanity has got poorer, but the world’s ten richest men have more than doubled their wealth, at an average gain of $15,000 a second for the last two years.

If those ten men were to lose 99.999% of their wealth tomorrow, they would still be richer than 99% of all the people on this planet, said Oxfam International’s Executive Director Gabriela Bucher. They now have six times more wealth than the poorest 3.1 billion. https://codastory.com
