At the same time, UN Secretary General Anton Guterres also said that inequality is one of the characteristics of our times. The lives of millions of people on earth depend largely on the moment they are born.
However, some people hold a negative attitude to the statement that 26 people own half of the worlds wealth. According to Lianhe Zaobao, 26 people in Guterress mouth have half of the worlds wealth, which is obviously a common sense error. Maybe this paragraph caters to some kind of psychology, and then it is wildly forwarded.
In fact, long before the topic 26 people own half of the worlds wealth attracted attention, Oxfam, an international charity, released a research report. In 2019, the wealth of the worlds richest 2153 people exceeded the total of the poorest 4.6 billion people (accounting for 60% of the worlds population).
According to the report, the global gap between the rich and the poor is increasing, and tax policies should be changed. Women and girls are the least benefited from todays economic system. Their work is the hidden engine of society and needs the protection of government legislation. In the next decade, having the richest 1% pay an extra tax of 0.5% on their property is equivalent to investing 117 million jobs in other fields.
