The 62 Richest People Are As Wealthy As Half The World



The 62 Richest People Are As Wealthy As Half The World The shocking extent of financial inequality around the world has been laid bare by a new report from Oxfam. It found that in 2015, 62 individuals owned as much wealth as the poorest half of the world's population. It also criticised the amount of money being kept in offshore tax havens. That comes to an estimated $7.6 trillion - more than the GDP of the UK and Germany combined.
