Oxfam report – An economy for the 99%

Oxfam published a report on income inequality, ‘An economy for the 99%,’ in January 2017.  The report noted that just eight men own the same wealth as the poorest half of the world.

Oxfam provided a blueprint for an alternative economic model, in which:

  • Governments work for the 99%;
  • Governments cooperate, not just compete;
  • Companies work for the benefit of everyone;
  • Extreme concentration of wealth is ended, to end extreme poverty;
  • The economy works equally for men and women;
  • Technology will be harnessed for the interests of the 99%;
  • The economy is powered by sustainable renewable energy; and,
  • We value and measure what really matters.
