FMF NEWSLETTER 7 February 2018    
EDITORIAL  

Dear friend of the FMF

In this week’s feature article, Andrew Kenny exposes Oxfam’s true agenda in producing its annual Inequality report. Where Oxfam should focus on advocating policies that would actually help the poor, they focus on the rich and demonise them. Oxfam ought to fight for an economy that results in growth and prosperity for millions of people around the world. which is an economy that promotes capitalism rather than entitlement.  If Oxfam wants to attack immoral inequality, it should focus on socialist regimes such as North Korea and Venezuela where force is used to subjugate the people. Kenny also explains that Oxfam’s definition of inequality dismisses crucial aspects, aspects which show that poorer people have indeed progressed where capitalism has been allowed to flourish.

FEATURE article  

Oxfam cares about the rich not the poor  – ANDREW KENNY

Oxfam, a rich charity based in London, must surely qualify as the biggest hypocrite on Earth and, worse, offers only policies that will harm the poor.

Every year, just before the Davos meeting of wealthy leaders, Oxfam produces a report on “inequality” in the world. It is dishonest nonsense. Oxfam, whose worthy aim is to reduce hunger, attacks capitalism, which has done just that with spectacular success, and supports socialism, which has produced starvation. An Oxfam spokesperson in South Africa declared capitalism a “crime against humanity”.
