The gap between the haves and the have-nots both in the UK and globally has turned into a chasm.
The growing debt crisis in poorer countries has also resulted in cuts in public spending, making it extremely difficult for many to meet the UN’s sustainable development goals to cut poverty and inequality. In this Perspectives, we ask leading experts Danny Dorling and Claire Ainsley to assess the ramifications of global greed and rising inequality and how we can urgently redress the balance.
