The inequality crisis is out of control. The economy is good at producing billionaires, but not so good at producing good jobs and rising incomes for working people. The growing gap between rich and poor is undermining the fight against poverty, damaging our economies, and fueling public anger across the globe.
Making it right
Governments, including the US, created the inequality crisis, and must act now to end it. They must ensure that wealthy individuals and corporations pay their fair share of taxes and invest this money in health care and education that meet the needs of everyone. Now is the time for all of us to ensure our economies work for everyone and not just the fortunate few.
