One percent wealth tax could educate every child and save 3 million lives

36 11 60

THE world’s 26 richest people own as much as the poorest 50 percent, a new report from Oxfam has found, as the charity pushes for a one percent wealth tax that could educate the entire world.

The annual wealth check, launched as political and business leaders gather for the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, shows a widening gap in inequality as 2018 saw the rich grow richer and the poor poorer.

“Billionaire fortunes increased by 12 percent last year – or US$2.5 billion a day – while the 3.8 billion people who make up the poorest half of humanity saw their wealth decline by 11 percent,” the report said.
