Oxfam Poverty and Inequality Report 2018

Oxfam’s annual report for 2018 shows a dismally widening inequality gap.

Last year saw the biggest increase in billionaires in history, one more every two days. 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.
