Economic Equality - Not Always Equal?

It is four years since the World Economic Forum identified rising economic inequality as a major threat to social stability. Despite world leaders signing up to a global goal to reduce inequality and ending poverty, the gap between the rich and the poor has severely widened. 

Today on Current Affairs, BFM explores the current state of the world’s economic inequality by looking at the recently published report by Oxfam - An Economy For The 99%. 

This is a report by Emir Zainul.
