We need a new economy

I read this today
“‘Reward Work, Not Wealth,’ a report published earlier this year by international charity Oxfam shed a spotlight on rising inequalities. The world’s billionaires reportedly increased their combined wealth by $762 billion over the past year – one seventh of this amount alone could eliminate extreme poverty across the globe. The report revealed that 82 percent of the wealth generated last year went to the richest one percent, who now own more than the other 99 percent. New billionaires are appearing at a faster rate than ever – there are now over 2,000 worldwide. In the USA, the three wealthiest individuals alone are as rich as the poorest half (roughly 160 million people).”

That is insane!

I feel we can support those who want to share wealth as a step to a better tomorrow…..
