1535392_642404529170520_1285088162_nI put up a post back on January 23rd punting the report from Oxfam that stated that eighty-five people own the same amount of wealth as half the population of the world – the other three and one half billion.

Some people mentioned that they might like to know who these great luminaries and world benefactors might be.  So I had a look and to my surprise not one of the literally dozens and dozens and dozens of blogs, gossips and news sites (including – shame on you – newspapers!) was giving any list of the guilty.

Deciding that The Oligarch Kings should be a blog of record, I went to the horse’s mouth contacting the ever delightful Jon Slater, Oxfam’s Head of News who pointed me in the direction of the following list of the….well ….wealthy.

I leave it to you to decide if they are worth it.
