President Macron has promised to make the fight against inequality a priority at this year’s G7 Summit in France. G7 leaders regularly pay lip service to the dangers of extreme inequality, yet they are actively fuelling inequality at home and across the globe. In this briefing, Oxfam sets out the seven key issues the G7 must act on if the Biarritz Summit is to deliver more than just warm words on fighting inequality. These issues are:
- Captured politics;
- Tax cuts for the rich;
- Neglecting social spending;
- Putting shareholders first;
- Climate change;
- Fuelling economies that don't work for women; and
- Failing to deliver on aid promises.
