What is happening to inequity? (Me)

There is evidence that economic growth in the last 50 years is positively correlated with increasing inequity (based on UN and World Bank data). Here’s a short video exploring conflicting inequity measurements. It’s a follow up of the video What is happening to poverty? (Rammelt and Surace) that explored conflicting poverty measurements.

Note: The third graph shows inequity of the population divided in deciles. This hides further inequities within the deciles. The 0.01% super rich pull the richest 10% up a lot (see The 99.99% versus the 0.01% (The Guardian)). (Thanks for pointing it out Alex.)
