Gap between rich and poor increases
Eight men, including Bill Gates and Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, now own the same amount of wealth as the poorest half of the world.
That’s according to a new study by Oxfam.
It finds the gap between the super rich and the poor is far greater than just a year ago.
The world’s 10 biggest corporations together have revenue greater than the 180 poorest countries combined.
The report details how big business and the super-rich have used their political influence and dodged taxes to widen the income gap.
