Patriotic Millionaires – BBC Interview

As billionaire wealth skyrockets, hundreds of millions of people around the world slide further into poverty. New data from an Oxfam report indicates that the wealth of billionaires in the food and agriculture industry increased by $382 billion during the pandemic alone. An emergency windfall tax on their wealth increase alone (to say nothing of their pre-pandemic billions) could end world hunger and double the incomes of 545 million small-scale farmers.

Interview correction – a $billion is only a thousand million dollars not a million. So that’s ok then!
