Visualising wealth inequality in Britain

This is such an important study. The next question being of course… what do we DO about it?

Make Wealth History

Inequality in Britain has been rising for 30 years. If current trends continue, we will be back to the inequality of the Victorian age within 20 years. That’s the message behind Inequality Briefing, which launched this short video summary of the problem yesterday.

It’s interesting that the video includes what we think inequality should look like – we know that there has to be some, and that absolute inequality is not the goal. The fact that the reality is so far from what we’d expect ought to be a bit of a wake-up to politicians content to ignore the issue.

The more people are aware of just how extreme inequality is  becoming, the harder it will be for it to be ignored, so please share the video around.
