According to a report from the anti-poverty coalition Oxfam, timed to coincide with Davos, the world’s 2,200 billionaires grew 12 percent wealthier last year. But the wealth is not trickling down. The poorest half of the world got 11 percent poorer in 2018, and today the top 26 billionaires own the same wealth as the poorest 3.8 billion people.
BWN Says: ‘Greatest challenges facing the world’? So what can they talk about when none of these people really know the true struggles of real life? How could they possibly know the challenges facing the world, when they are blinded by their wealth and living in their own little worlds? What challenges, keeping people away from their money or how to make more money? What about inviting some intelligent homeless people or starving people to the ‘summit’?? They really don’t want to hear the REAL truth do they? This is nothing more than a ‘lets gather and talk about how great we are, and show who has the best jet, summit. Totally sickening.
