Inequality is a big, big subject. There's racial inequality, gender inequality, and lots and lots of other kinds of inequality. This is Econ, so we're going to talk about wealth inequality and income inequality. There's no question that economic inequality is real. But there is disagreement as to whether income inequality is a problem, and what can or should be done about it. *** Crash Course is on Patreon!

Inequality has been getting a lot of attention in recent years, but little is being done to address it. The rich have the influence to force change, but they don't want to lose the power afforded to them by their wealth, nor their excessive lifestyles.

Lamay, Peru -- In this Andean town outside Cuzco, I traveled with Peru's First Lady Nadine Heredia to the San Luis Gonzaga primary school. This school, and many others in the area, have had poor learning outcomes. But I was impressed by the government's and the school's commitment to improve, which will be critical in the efforts to reduce inequality and boost shared prosperity in Peru. Watch this video from a second-grade classroom to learn more.
Automation and inequality are closely connected. If inequality isn't addressed, the benefits of automation will go to those at the top. However, if we create more equal societies before transferring work from humans to robots, we will be able to spread the benefits to everyone. An article I wrote about how automation could create very different service experiences for the rich and poor if we don't first address inequality: https://medium.com/@parismarx/humans-to-serve-the-rich-robots-to-serve-the-poor-6e2efc95c1b4 Twitter: http://twitter.com/parismarx Medium: http://medium.com/@parismarx Instagram: http://instagram.com/parismarx Tumblr: http://parismarx.tumblr.com/ Google+: http://google.com/+parismarx
