“The world's 100 richest people earned a stunning total of $240 billion in 2012 – enough money to end extreme poverty worldwide four times over, Oxfam has revealed, adding that the global economic crisis is further enriching the super-rich”  

“The richest 1 percent has increased its income by 60 percent in the last 20 years with the financial crisis accelerating rather than slowing the process,” while the income of the top 0.01 percent has seen even greater growth, a new Oxfam report said. (Oxfam NZ, 20th January 2013)  

Frankly what you are reading here from Oxfam N.Z is a load of shit.  

Firstly in a stunning omission Oxfam forgot the trivial matter of the taxes paid by this cabal of evil super-rich and their companies.  

Taxes Oxfam conveniently avoids itself as a charity - a charity willing to play politics every chance it gets.   

What’s good for the goose is evidently not so for the gander tax wise and it's tax we are talking about here.   

In another gap in Oxfam’s political manoeuvres to raise taxes in the west to give to despots in Africa, they forgot to mention the bit about their own Chief Executive Barbara Stocking who earns a cool £109,100, over NZ$200,000 a year.  

So let’s examine Oxfam’s claims about the Scrooge McDucks swimming in their vaults of money whilst millions starve.   

It’s easy to drum up a list of the World’s Richest and see what they do with their dosh. 

If only more numb-skulls would do so rather than believing the contemptible crap Oxfam spews out.   

Let’s start with the world’s top ten rich-pricks: 

1.)    Carlos Slim: The world’s richest man just happens to be the world’s largest philanthropist giving away approx two billion U.S a year. As best I can establish his generosity alone is  four times Oxfams annual budget.      

2.)    Bill Gates: Is well on the way to donating 95% of his wealth to charity.

3.)    Amancio Ortega: Funds Spain’s largest charity.

4.)    Warren Buffet: Is in the process of giving away 99% of his fortune to charity.

5.)    Ingvar Kamprad:  The company he founded IKEA has a long tradition of community outreach and philanthropy, with each store encouraged to support local causes, plus international sponsorship of UNICEF and others. His family trust gives away a billion U.S a year whilst Kamprad himself leads a frugal life.

6.)    Charles Koch: Received the William E. Simon Prize for Philanthropic Leadership in 2011.

7.)    David Koch: Funds one of the world’s largest Cancer Research Centres named in his honour.

8.)    Larry Edison: Has joined with Gates and Buffet pledging to give away the vast majority of his fortune.  

9.)    Christy and Jim Walton: Christy holds the title as the world’s greatest female philanthropist, a billion or so every year. The Walton Family Foundation which controls the Wal-Mart fortune aims to give away at least half to U.S Charities.  

So take any of these examples and you’ll see Oxfam is expedient with the truth.  

The very same individuals that Oxfan has launched a hate campaign against are in-fact extremely philanthropic. 

Doubtless number 100 is the same as well.  

Their charity dwarfs that of Oxfam which must hurt.

Millions around the globe are better off thanks to these rich pricks Oxfam hates for being ultra-successful business people.  

The ironic truth is the Super Rich do a lot more good making the planet a better place than the jealous losers at Oxfam.  

Nor did the super-rich didn’t become super-rich by giving away money to wankers like Oxfam who can’t even work-out over-population is the primary cause of global poverty.
