About This Collection


The inequality in income has become an increasingly high-profile issue in America, considerably alarming for a nation built on "liberty, opportunity and equality for all." The difference between the rich, and middle-class and poor is widening with the gap at a 30-year high in most OECD countries (The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development's "Focus on Inequality and Growth," December 2014). The bottom line is that income inequality hurts economies, education and the 99%.

How are these shortfalls experienced in the U.S. and around the world? Who are the leaders and thinkers grappling with this issue, and what do they predict will be the consequences? In January, WORLD Channel will be showcasing the many stories of the fight for economic equality, and how the changing economics affect the social structures of how we live. Featured series programming includes AfroPop, Frontline, Global Voices, Independent Lens, P.O.V. and America ReFramed.
