The State of Global Inequality: From the Top to the Bottom

The State of Global Inequality: From the Top to the Bottom

Some of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations are directly related to combating inequality, such as: ending poverty (SDG 1), ending hunger (SDG 2), promoting inclusive economic growth; productive and decent work (SDG 8) and reducing income inequality within and among countries (SDG 10). 

However, almost a decade after the last financial crisis, the gap between the global corporate elites and peoples around the world continue to widen.
