I'll go further than T1J and say that being a billionaire is inherently evil and unjustifiable. We need to elevate people from poverty by forcing the wealth hoarders to foot the bill.

Philip Alston’s 12-day tour will look at issues such as housing, education and healthcare

The UN’s extreme poverty expert is embarking on a 12-day visit to Spain to see what the government of Europe’s fifth largest economy is doing to address inequality, unemployment and social exclusion.

Philip Alston, the special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, will begin his fact-finding mission in Madrid on Monday before travelling to Galicia, the Basque country, Extremadura, Andalucía and Catalonia.

The #robots are already here, so why is #unemployment so low?


A good read about #jobs, unemployment, #poverty and #automation.

TL;DR Unemployment in the UK has dropped because of the rise in the gig economy and zero hour contracts, leaving many people #underemployed, and seeing a rise in the number of working poor. #Automation contributes to this. It's taking away more jobs than officially accounted for, leaving bits of insecure work Uber-style, and they too might disappear.

The elephant graph has been used by some to argue that #neoliberal #globalization has caused #inequality to decline since 1980. After all, it would appear that the biggest gains have gone to the poorest 60% of the world’s population, whose incomes have grown two or three times more than those of the richest 40%.

But this impression can be misleading. It’s important to recognize that the elephant graph shows relative gains, with respect to each group’s baseline in 1980. So the poorest 10-20th percentile gained 82% over this period. That sounds like a lot, on the face of it. But remember that they started from a very low base. For people earning $2.40 per day in 1980, their incomes grew to no more than $4.36 per day… over a period of 36 years. So, about 5 cents per year.
