World’s richest – In a report published today Oxfam has said that the world's 26 richest people own as much wealth as the poorest half of humanity.

A new report from the charity, published ahead of the World Economic Forum in Davos, also found that billionaires around the world saw their combined fortunes grow by $2.5 billion each day in 2018.
