أصحاب الثروات الهائلة يسيطرون على 63% من الثروة الجديدة

By Jordi Bou

January 16, 2023 - تدعو منظمة أوكسفام إلى إقرار ضرائب جديدة على أصحاب الثروات الفاحشة لمواجهة الارتفاع في عدم المساواة العالمية في فترة ما بعد جائحة كوفيد. أغنى 1 في المائة من الأثرياء يملكون ما يقرب من ثلثي كامل الثروة الجديدة التي جمعت منذ العام 2020، والتي تبلغ قيمتها 42 تريليون دولار.

The aid group made its plea as the Swiss Alpine village of Davos hosts political leaders, CEOs and celebrities for the week-long World Economic Forum.

In a report titled “Survival of the Richest”, the charity said that during the pandemic and cost-of-living crisis years since 2020, $26 trillion (63%) of all new wealth was captured by the richest 1%, while $16 trillion (37%) went to the rest of the world put together.

Billionaire fortunes have increased by $2.7 billion a day. This comes on top of a decade of historic gains – the number and wealth of billionaires having doubled over the last ten years.

Oxfam calls for taxes at rates that progressively redistribute wealth and reduce extreme inequality.
