Hearer of All, we pray that you will watch over and protect those who are suffering around the world as a result of economic inequality.
Report: Elites and citizens agree that economic inequality is a top priority, according to an article on PewRearch.org. A new report released by the World Economic Forum ranks rising inequality as the top trend facing the globe in 2015. Credit Suisse says people with a net worth of more than $1 million represent just 0.7 % of the global population, but they have 41% of the world's wealth. Meanwhile, those with a net worth of less than $10,000 represent 69% of the population, but just 3% of global wealth. Experts have concluded that inequality is linked to poverty, environmental degradation, unemployment, and political instability.
