of the billionaires wealth is needed to fix these problems. That’s just
Even it up
Build an economy that works for everyone, not just the few
Today’s billionaires have done incredibly well out of our world. Yet for others, desperate poverty still exists. Billionaires must help build a future that works for everyone, not just the privileged few.
The global economy is broken
Eight billionaires own the same wealth as half the world’s population. That’s right – eight individuals own as much as the poorest 3.6 billion people. Meanwhile, every day 1 in 9 people go to bed hungry.
Such extreme inequality is outrageous. Families living in poverty around the world are forced to suffer impossibly low wages, inhumane working conditions, and a total lack of even the most basic public services like water, education and healthcare. Governments are doing too little to help. And all the while, the usual suspects make billions from a system bent in their favour.
It doesn’t have to be this way. We can choose another future. A future where governments act to help everyone, where people are put before profits, and everyone is given a fair chance. We can help end poverty, and the rich and powerful need to play their part.
Send billionaires a message: help build an economy that works for everyone, not just the privileged few.
