A sign of the times….

At a time when the comedy roadshow that is Davos is providing a platform for the “great and the good” (sic) to agonise over the fate of the world, a timely reminder from Oxfam:

“Global wealth is increasingly concentrated in the hands of a small wealthy elite. These wealthy individuals have generated and sustained their vast riches through their interests and activities in a few important economic sectors, including finance and insurance, and pharmaceuticals and healthcare. Companies from these sectors spend millions of dollars every year on lobbying to create a policy environment that protects and enhances their interests further”.

I came across this, whilst wandering about Portsmouth earlier today…..

Seems quite appropriate given that it’s highly likely to be the global elite that are  setting the framework for Davos….
