"Macroeconomic policies, financial globalisation, and changes in labour
market institutions have exacerbated inequality in recent decades, not
only in income and wealth, but also in access to education, healthcare,
social protection, as well as in political participation and influence.
Even within countries experiencing rapid economic growth, an array of
factors, exacerbated by tremendous demographic changes, has conspired
to transmit inequality of knowledge, social responsibility, and life
chances from one generation to the next." Jomo K.S.
