Inequality for All

From Oxfam:

In 2014, the richest 1% of people in the world owned 48% of global wealth,
leaving just 52% to be shared between the other 99% of adults on the planet.
Almost all of that 52% is owned by those included in the richest 20%, leaving just
5.5% for the remaining 80% of people in the world. If this trend continues of an
increasing wealth share to the richest, the top 1% will have more wealth than the
remaining 99% of people in just two years, as shown on Figure 2, with the wealth
share of the top 1% exceeding 50% by 2016.
