      Oxfam’s report on the unequal distribution of global wealth might be flawed, but its broader conclusion about the wealth gap stands up to scrutiny. Critics of Oxfam’s Poverty Statistics. The Oxfam report is one such example. If we use their system of benchmarking, we would become universally poor. Oxfam claims to want to help people out of poverty, but these benchmarks are irresponsible and making their beneficiaries worser off. They may have the heart, but the route to hell is paved with good intentions.
