The Oxfam report is a chilling reminder of the depths of wealth inequality across the globe; widening inequality has created a vicious circle where wealth and power is concentrated in the hands of a few, leaving the rest to fight over crumbs. Children, and Family standards • In Europe, austerity has been imposed on the poor and middle classes under huge pressure from financial markets whose wealthy investors have benefited from state bailouts of financial institutions.

Even in the birth place of Capitalism and today's epicentre, Europe and the US, wealth distribution remains a massive failure. The dogmatic views of the free market and economic growth relegated wealth distribution to the invisible hand that only liberals can see, the rest of the world, since such ideas were presented in 1778 by the god father of capitalism, Adam Smith, still await the fruits of this obscure process. The trickle-down effect which was meant to make wealth flow from the top to the bottom remains as elusive as ever and is in fact worse today then Victorian Britain.

Demo in Jordan: Reject the Geneva Conspiracy, the Tyrannical System and Treacherous Coalition Richard Robbins in his award winning book 'Global Problems and the Culture of Capitalism' confirmed this when he said "The emergence of Capitalism represents a culture that is in many ways the most successful that has ever been deployed in terms of accommodating large numbers of individuals in relative and absolute comfort and luxury. It has not been as successful, however, in integrating all in equal measure, and its failure here remains one of its major problems." Warm Call to the One of the main reasons for this economic inequality is because the rich have huge influence upon political leadership and political institutions. These have become undermined as governments overwhelmingly serve the interests of economic elites to the detriment of ordinary people. Hasina by Providing The Oxfam report recognizes the curse of capitalism – money and politics, "Since the late 1970s, weak regulation of the role of money in politics has permitted wealthy individuals and corporations to exert undue influence over government policy making."

  2. 2. 1/2/2014 Capitalism: of the rich, by the rich and only for the rich The rich have been able to preserve such a status quo as the lowest tax rates, the best health and education and Lessons from Nelson the opportunity to influence are handed down to their children. Without a concerted effort to tackle inequality, the cascade of privilege and of disadvantage will continue down the generations. Economic growth today amounts to Mandela's Struggle little more than a 'winner takes all' windfall for the richest." New beginnings Capitalism has no solutions to wealth distribution, more economic growth, changing tax regimes and tackling tax Slavery and Soccer - avoidance are merely skirting around the real issue. This is a systemic issue and merely reforming capitalism will just perpetuate the problem. Despite describing the inequalities of capitalism, even Oxfam accepts the sad Qatar's heresy realities of capitalism, "Some economic inequality is essential to drive growth and progress, rewarding those with talent, hard earned skills, and the ambition to innovate and take entrepreneurial risks." things the US is Capitalism only has one view towards wealth distribution, namely leaving it to the free market. A number of countries seeing the failure of the invisible hand have turned to the visible hand of the state and have achieved mixed results.
