“Income inequality undermines growth” says OECD

30 Apr 2014, by in Economics

The OECD has launched a video today with a radical attack on growing inequalities between rich and poor, which they argue are not just unfair but holding back the economy.

They call for new approaches to taxing the rich, and for new policies of redistribution.

Radical stuff!

    Yes I agree that inequality is evil & I have put your info on my twitter & YouTube . Maybe we should all be thinking a little less on international global levels of inequalities & get a grip on such important issues at a more UK local level Government first . My concerns are lay within the current Labour Party leadership & it’s dynamics. One of which is their disengagement with it’s own poor ,disabled, elderly & unemployed citizen’s .

    We also need to look at the policies that create inequality in the first place. Royal Mail privatisation springs to mind.
