Bill Gates is wrong, the rich-poor divide is only getting wider

The former Microsoft bosss faith in the system that gave him all the money he now spends to fight inequality is perhaps instinctive. But there is ample evidence now that inequality is inbuilt in the capitalist system. #Economy #ToTheContrary #Poverty #Bill Gates #poor
