The Gap Widens

The legal dispute over a divorce settlement between  Silvio Belusconi and his second wife shows the enormous gap between the millions who are trying to survive on $2 a day and the obscene wealth of the owning class.'Her demand for a one-off payment of 540 million euros (£440 million) caused talks to break down. Belusconi, who is worth an estimated 6.5 billion euros, is said to be willing to offer her 200 million euros.' (Times, 10 May) RD
