A world where 8 men own the same wealth as humanity’s poorer half

A new Oxfam report, An Economy for the 99%, published by Oxfam today shows that the inequality crisis is far bigger than previously thought – today just eight men own the same wealth as the 3.6 billion people who make up the poorer half of humanity.

A year in pictures: The impact you helped to achieve in 2016

2016 was surely a challenging but rewarding year. The continuation of conflict across the Middle East and East Africa, the ever-changing face of our climate and volatile weather systems, the rising inequality which drives global poverty and of course, the escalating refugee crisis, are challenges which have undoubtedly caused much devastation and sorrow across the world.

Our new Oxfam survey highlights the public's wishes for a new tax system. So we decided to create a tropical tax haven island right in the heart of the Belfast city, all to highlight the kind of scenario people want to avoid as a result of any change to Northern Ireland’s corporation tax rate.
