I read an article today on Duncan Green, author of the book "From Poverty to Power" about the growing inequality between the rich (getting richer) and the poor (growing in numbers).

He says in the interview that the 100 richest people on this planet have earned a combined fortune of 180 billion euro in the year 2012 alone. This is enough to ban worldwide poverty 4 times over.

We get used to it indeed. Sad state of affairs.
