Dear users, today we have a very personal request. We have decided to offer our learning materials free of charge because we believe in an open, pluralist economic science that is available to everyone, worldwide. We do this without advertising because we want to remain independent of commercial interests. But our commitment to independence and open access also has its price. Every year we have large costs for programming, staff and to support our authors. If everyone reading this gave a small amount, we could keep Exploring Economics thriving for years to come - but 99% of our users don't give. So today we ask you to protect Exploring Economics's independence. The heart and soul of Exploring Economics is a community of people working to bring you unlimited access to high-qualitiy, economic learning and teaching material. Please take just a few moments to help us keep Exploring Economics going. Thank you!

Inequality 101 with Branko Milanovic & Arjun Jayadev
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
Comment from our editors:
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.
