As inequality rises, so too will conflict

Inequality is increasing rapidly in many countries around the world.  The video below provides a better understanding of inequality in New Zealand (a good number of the graphics include other countries, such as USA and parts of Europe).

Journalist Max Rashbrooke explains what happened to NZ’s distribution of incomes and wealth over the last thirty years, puts this in an international context, and shows the results for our society. The dramatic increase in inequality has produced, in Max’s phrase, “five corrosions” — eating away at our social cohesion, health & wellbeing, politics, opportunity and in fact damaging our economy itself.

If you think this needs to be more widely understood, share this post and spread the word
