The world’s 100 richest people earned a stunning total of $240
billion in 2012 – enough money to end extreme poverty worldwide four
times over, Oxfam has revealed, adding that the global economic crisis
is further enriching the super-rich.

“The richest 1 percent has increased its income by 60 percent in
the last 20 years with the financial crisis accelerating rather than
slowing the process,”
while the income of the top 0.01 percent has seen even greater growth, a new Oxfam report said.

For example, the luxury goods market has seen double-digit growth
every year since the crisis hit, the report stated. And while the
world’s 100 richest people earned $240 billion last year, people in “extreme poverty” lived on less than $1.25 a day.

Oxfam is a leading international philanthropy organization. Its new report,
‘The Cost of Inequality: How Wealth and Income Extremes Hurt us All,’
argues that the extreme concentration of wealth actually hinders the
world’s ability to reduce poverty.

The report was published before the World Economic Forum in Davos next week, and calls on world leaders to
“end extreme wealth by 2025, and reverse the rapid increase in
inequality seen in the majority of countries in the last 20 years.”


Oxfam’s report argues that extreme wealth is unethical, economically
inefficient, politically corrosive, socially divisive and
environmentally destructive.


The report proposes a new global deal to world leaders to curb extreme poverty to 1990s levels by:

- closing tax havens, yielding $189bn in additional tax revenues

- reversing regressive forms of taxation

- introducing a global minimum corporation tax rate

- boosting wages proportional to capital returns

- increasing investment in free public services


The problem is a global one, Oxfam said: “In the UK inequality is
rapidly returning to levels not seen since the time of Charles Dickens.
In China the top 10 percent now take home nearly 60 percent of the
income. Chinese inequality levels are now similar to those in South
Africa, which is now the most unequal country on Earth and significantly
more [inequality] than at the end of apartheid.”


In the US, the richest 1 percent’s share of income has doubled since
1980 from 10 to 20 percent, according to the report. For the top 0.01
percent, their share of national income quadrupled, reaching levels
never seen before.

“We can no longer pretend that the creation of wealth for a few
will inevitably benefit the many – too often the reverse is true,”
Executive Director of Oxfam International Jeremy Hobbs said.

Hobbs explained that concentration of wealth in the hands of the top
few minimizes economic activity, making it harder for others to
participate: “From tax havens to weak employment laws, the richest benefit from a global economic system which is rigged in their favor.”

The report highlights that even politics has become controlled by the super-wealthy, which leads to policies “benefitting the richest few and not the poor majority, even in democracies.”

“It is time our leaders reformed the system so that it works in
the interests of the whole of humanity rather than a global elite,”
the report said.

The four-day World Economic Forum will be held in Davos starting next
Wednesday. World financial leaders will gather for an annual meeting
that will focus on reviving the global economy, the eurozone crisis and
the conflicts in Syria and Mali.
