Inequality has diminished on a global scale in the last 30 years, as more than two billion people have been lifted out of poverty in countries such as China or India. However, in the United States and, to a lesser extent, Western Europe and other developed regions, inequality whithin individual countries has often increased in recent years after decades of general growth in prosperity. Many analysts attribute the latter phenomenon both to globalisation and inadequate policy responses to the pace of technological change.

This note brings together commentaries, analyses and studies by major international think tanks and research institutes on economic and social inequality. Reports on gender or racial inequalities will be covered in greater detail in a future edition in these series.
