Inequality: insights from the blogosphere

I’ve been posting a mini-series on inequality and as always there are others around who are posting on similar themes. Here they are all in one place.

  • Martin Charlesworth has been thinking through a critique of capitalism. First the background and then this first beginnings. Keep an eye on this as more look forthcoming
  • The Why Nations Fail blog examines the facts behind the top 1%. Truth is they now own and control more than ever!
  • Freakonomics examines the wealth effect and concludes, ‘it ain’t pretty’. The richer you get, the more defensive, insenstive, and selfish you become!
  • Breathe reminds us that we can all be philanthropists and they also led me to this video on the price of materialism and the need for a new dream
