Wealthy grabbing power & more, says Oxfam....

Global inequality has increased to the extent that the £1 trillion combined wealth of the 85 richest people is equal to that of the poorest 3.5 billion - half of the world's population - according to a new report from development charity Oxfam.

And the report, entitled Working For The Few, claims that growing inequality has been driven by a "power grab" by wealthy elites, who have co-opted the political process to rig the rules of the economic system in their favour.

The wealth of the 85 richest people equals that of half the world's population, says development charity Oxfam

85 = 3,500,000,000

The good news is:  Everybody dies & you can't take a damn thing with you...
