The global economy isn’t working for most people. Instead, it lifts a few ever higher, while the rest fight to get by. These essays look at rampant and growing disparities around a number of challenges, including economic inequality, access to opportunities, education, income, race, wealth, and more. It also offers ideas towards creating more just, sustainable outcomes. Essays from a diverse group of contributors, including academics, activists, artists, business & NGO leaders, economists, and journalists offer the reader an array of perspectives to help them develop a broader understanding of the challenges while giving them the opportunity to evolve their own views.
This book will challenge your thinking as it encourages you to reconsider long-held positions. We won't ask you to agree with any one of us, but that you do consider each of our positions and in the end that you refashion your own. Hopefully, our book will tilt you towards action in a world and a society that’s in desperate need of help.
