Musk, Bezos, Slim: Who are the millionaires called by AMLO to cooperate in a plan against inequality?

The president’s proposal, presented before the UN Security Council, is straightforward in its approach: that the world’s richest nations, companies and individuals cooperate to create a fund and support those who have the least in the world.

In the case of the thousand richest people in the world, the World Plan of Fraternity and Welfare suggests that they donate 4 percent of their fortunes to the fund each year.
