We’re back with more from Branko Milanovic, professor at the City University of New York’s Stone Center on Socio-Economic Inequality, and author of the book Global Inequality: A New Approach for the Age of Globalization.

Last week, producer Meara Sharma talked with Milanovic about the factors that have driven inequities among nations and societies for centuries. While the last two decades have seen a decline in global inequality for the first time since the industrial revolution, the gulf that divides the haves from the have-nots remains extreme. So this week, we talk about solutions: how that gulf can be bridged, and whether there’s the political will to do so.
