16 January 2017 1:28 PM
Oxfam says the World Economic Forum is the most elitist gatherings and the most expensive economic event on the calendar.

Oxfam launched an inequality report to coincide with the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos. WEF meeting is due to start in Davos on Tuesday in Switzerland and will run until Friday.

Oxfam says this is the most elitist gatherings and the most expensive economic event on the calendar.

EWN reporter Ziyanda Ngcobo says Oxfam's report talks about the economy of the 1% which rules the whole nation and only benefiting a few.

The report says there are a lot of assumptions that drives the economy of the 1% which owns a total of 42% of South Africa's wealth.
