The Anatomy of Inequality: Its Social and Economic Origins - and Solutions
Award-winning Swedish analyst Per Molander's book changes the conversation about the causes and effects of inequality. Molander addresses obvious questions that other pundits avoid - including why the wealthiest countries, such as the US, have the greatest incidences of inequality. Drawing from anthropology, statistics, literature and political science, Molander looks at his subject across various political and ideological systems to examine policies that have created more just societies, and demonstrate how we can enact similar changes.
