Oxfam report says that the the richest 26 people own as many assets as the poorest 50 percent of the people i.e. 3.8 billion people.
This should concern everyone is Britain, and everyone around the world. To Aristotle, the ill effects of inequality were clear. When very few people have all the riches and wealth, they can bypass the laws and mould laws according to their wishes. And those, the large section of the society, without any wealth and assets, will resent the rich as well as disrespect the laws. Either get rid of inequality or one would not have democracy, Aristotle argued.
