Oxfam's latest report warns that the world's inequality is even worse than we thought, with the top 8 super-rich owning as much as 3.6 billion people.
The world's eight richest businessmen own as much wealth as half the world's population combined, according to an Oxfam report. Inequality is "more shocking than ever before," the aid group says.
Once again, the global elite is meeting at the World Economic Forum in Davos. But the climate is different this time as US President-elect Donald Trump dominates the meeting - without even being there.
According to Oxfam, the world's richest 62 people now own the same as the poorest half of world's population. The aid group also found that the majority of low-paid workers around the world are women.
The World Economic Forum in Davos is a gathering of the global elite. This year's meeting has shown very clearly just how much the leaders present were longing for leadership themselves, says DW's Andreas Becker.
