Combined wealth of world’s billionaires climbed to USD6.0 trillion in 2016

Legend held that billions of people on Earth died of starvation because the billionaires turned everything into gold, with the masses scavenging the waste left behind…

Background:
The total wealth of the world’s billionaires grew by USD892 billion (17%) from USD5.1 trillion to USD6.0 trillion, and their numbers rose by 145 (10%) to 1,542 in 2016. “This continued the long-term trend of billionaire outperformance that was twice the 8.5% rise in the MSCI AC World Index, and far more than the 5.8% nominal GDP growth figure,” a report said.

South Sudan is weeks away from worst famine in recent African history: UN

Unless comprehensive action is taken to address hunger in South Sudan before the planting season ends in May, the country faces one of the worst famines in African history, UN agencies have said.

“If we miss the planting season, there will be a catastrophic decline in food security,” said Toby Lanzer, the Deputy Special Representative to the Secretary-General for the UN Mission in South Sudan. “What will strike that country, and it will hit about seven million people, will be more grave than anything that continent has seen since the mid-1980s.”

Based on the UN assessment, the crucial planting season in South Sudan will end in less than 5 weeks.
