As The Rich Get Richer... World Economic Forum 2014 (part 2)

The 85 richest people on the planet earn as much as the poorest 3.5 billion. A report by Oxfam, which highlights the study by a group of economists, shows on the eve of the World Economic Forum in Davos how those 85 super rich could squeeze onto one double-decker bus (not that they take the bus). So why is the growing gap between rich and poor not more of an issue?

Produced and prepared by Anelise Borges, Haxie Meyers-Belkin and Christopher Davis

By François PICARD
