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.
The report points out that the number of billionaires has doubled in the past decade. The report also cites other comparisons of the gap between the rich and the poor, saying that the 22 richest men in the world are equal to the wealth of all women in Africa. Even if they have saved $10000 a day since the construction of the pyramid, they are only one fifth of the average assets of the five richest people in the world.
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.
