Global Inequality: Why it Matters

Since 1990, global poverty has halved, going down from 43% of the world population subsisting on less than $1 a day to 21% in 2010. According to UNESCO, the number of children not enrolled in school is down from 101 million in 2000 to 57 million in 2011. The absolute gap in life expectancy between wealthy and low-income regions has shrunk from 23 years in the 1950s to under ten years in the last decade — with the exception of sub-Saharan Africa where it still lingers at 16 years. But the world is far from a fair, harmonious place.
