Oxfam apela a políticas de “caça aos bilionários”

By Jordi Bou

January 16, 2023 - A Oxfam pede novos impostos sobre os super-ricos para enfrentar o
aumento da desigualdade global pós-Covid. O 1% mais rico apoderou-se de quase dois terços da riqueza criada desde 2020, no valor de $42 biliões.

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.
