"The Nineteenth century saw a great Springtime of Nations as the revolutions of 1848 saw new countries created the length and breadth of Europe.

In January 2015, Oxfam, a large charity organization
seeking to eliminate poverty, published a report stating that 1% of the
global population will own more wealth than the rest of the 99%
combined by 2016. This report drew attention to the World Economic Forum
held in Switzerland, where the wealthy elite and politicians addressed
the issue of the widening wealth gap.
