Inequality, in many ways, may be the biggest question of our times. And yet it is a topic that is still underexplored in conventional economics curricula.
In this series, produced by the Institute for New Economic Thinking, the economists Branko Milanovic & Arjun Jayadev address an issue that we all face every day. Within five lectures they help you understand the importance of understanding inequality in today's world.
Each lecture lasts between 28 - 40 minutes and you can find them on the original INET video site. The History of Economic Thought website provides accompanying materials to each lecture:
Lecture 1 - Inequality - Why Should I Care?
Lecture 2 - How Do We Measure Inequality?
Lecture 3 - What is Happening?
Lecture 4 - What is Happening Now?
Lecture 5 - The Bigger Picture
Highly recommended E-Learning material for everyone. It is of crucial importance to understand what today's inequality is & why it exists, how it is measured, and finally how to address it. This lecture series addresses all this and is also incredibly well produced with a lot of helpful graphics.
