United Nations: Goal 10 focuses on reducing inequality within and among countries. We asked Programme Specialist Shannon O’Shea from the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) to explain what type of inequality the goal focuses on and what countries, organizations and individuals can do to reduce inequalities in their societies.

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!

Join us for an important discussion on the minimum wage in emerging markets. In recent years, the minimum wage has become an increasingly popular policy instrument to reduce inequality in many emerging markets, but to date there has been little systematic comparison of country experiences to assess how the role and impact of minimum wages are different than in OECD countries. One challenge in emerging and developing economies is how to enforce minimum wage regulations when a large share of the labor force is employed in the informal sector. In this Google Hangout online discussion, leading experts on minimum wage regulations in India, South Africa, China, and Southeast Asia will discuss the political forces behind minimum wage setting, the extent of compliance with minimum wage regulatio...
