Bill Gates says poverty is decreasing. He couldn’t be more wrong – Jason Hickel

Jan 29, 2019 – Only 5% of all new income from global growth trickles down to the poorest 60% – and yet they are the people who produce most of the food and goods that the world consumes, toiling away in those factories, plantations and mines to which they were condemned 200 years ago. It is madness – and no amount of mansplaining from billionaires will be adequate to justify it.
