CWN Editor's Note: The January 21-22 edition of L’Osservatore Romano devoted front-page coverage to a new Oxfam International report on economic inequality. The report found that “billionaire fortunes increased by 12% last year,” while “the 3.8 billion people who make up the poorest half of humanity saw their wealth decline by 11%.”
