Delo - Slovenia | Tuesday, January 20, 2015

Inequality dangerous but growing nonetheless

The participants at the World Economic Forum in Davos won't campaign for a fairer world, the left-liberal daily Delo comments, and points out that this is regrettable given that poverty radicalises: "This is slowly dawning even on those who will fly to the Swiss resort of Davos in private jets and helicopters on Wednesday. ... But even though the fear of the dangerous consequences of inequality is already present among them it's unlikely that they'll bring the rich to book for evading taxes. It's also unlikely that capital will be taxed more heavily than labour, that the minimum wage will be increased or that public services will be improved, as Oxfam demands, even though the growing inequality is already causing the first conflicts in Europe."
