Income inequality: how it happened, what it costs, how to fix it

Income inequality: how it happened, what it costs, how to fix it

The Economic Policy Institute has come up with a handy click-thru animation on income inequality–how it happened, what it costs you personally, and how to fix it.

One of the more eye-opening pages on the site debunks the myth that effects of inequality in the United States are ameliorated by economic mobility. The U. S. is less economically mobile than most of its peer countries, and mobility has not increased in the decades in which inequality has soared.

How should the church respond to the issue of income inequality?

Hat tip: Timothy Noah.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
