The Source: Global Inequality

May 23, 2016


There's a lot of talk these days about income inequity in the United States. That's important but lets broaden the view. Income inequity across the planet. 

Understanding Global inequity is now more important than ever - because of globalization. Is this movement of trade and services - lifting up the very poor around the world - or not. What are the forces behind global income distribution.  

How connected are they to regional destabilization - war and mass migration?
