“Inequality By The Numbers”

I just received an email from the Working Group on Extreme Inequality that contains a link to a paper they have produced  entitled, “Inequality By The Numbers.”

The paper, containing facts, figures, and graphs, addresses the extreme gap that exists between those that continue to get richer and those that continue to get poorer during this period of economic “recession.”

The email says,

This week some of the nation’s leading experts on poverty released a report that examines the deep impact of our ‘Great Recession’ and outlines the steps we need to take to get our economy moving so that it helps those who need it the most.”

The report concludes that the economic crisis is still on the rise for millions of Americans, while at the same time the social safety net is failing to support many of them. It offers one of the boldest, most comprehensive plans to combat poverty and unemployment — beginning now.”

I have found this paper to be very informative. Perhaps you would like to read it as well. The paper can be found here.
