2 reports on inequality

I often raise the issue of inequality in this blog and the impact it has....well here are two New Economics Foundation reports just published that are worth a look:
10 Reasons to Care About Economic Inequality
Why the Rich Are Getting Richer

The report author, Faiza, writes: "Economic inequality in the UK is the highest in recorded history. In 1979 we were similar to the Netherlands and now we’re one of the most unequal countries in the developed world. From the riots in England to the global Occupy protest movement, the growing gap between the rich and poor is becoming harder to ignore. We need to win the argument that tackling inequality is necessary, desirable and possible – please read the reports and share them with your friends."
