Report finds that Oxfam’s top 22 people are dumber than everyone everyone in Africa who has suffered brain damage — 6 Comments

  1. Oxfam used to seriously engage with global trade issues, acknowledging the potential benefits of capitalism, but these days they’re falling more and more into the economic fallacy of the zero-sum game, i.e. some people are poor because others are rich.
    More people than ever before emerged from poverty in the last decade and Oxfam’s well-digging and belly-aching had nothing to do with it.

  2. To be pedantic, roughly half of Oxfam’s income comes from governments (not just the UK government), multilateral organisations, Oxfam affiliates and international foundations – in 2018 it was £207m of their £427m total income. Donations, legacies etc came in at £99m and trading produced £93m. To all intents and purposes they are a governmental organisation. See pages 59 et seq

  3. It is a reasonable guess that the 22 richest women in the world have more wealth than 325 million men in Africa. The economy really is so sexist!
