Confronting Inequality

How Societies can Choose Inclusive Growth

Overview

An accessible insight into the co-relation between government policies and economic inequality. Inequality has drastically increased in many countries around the globe over the past three decades. The widening gap between the very rich and everyone else is often portrayed as an unexpected outcome or as the trade-off we must accept to achieve economic growth. In this book, three International Monetary Fund economists show that this increase in inequality has, in fact, been a political choice—and explain what policies we should choose instead to achieve a more inclusive economy.
