Economic inequality affects everybody.
No matter how rich or poor you are, economic inequality impacts every aspect of your life—the place where you live, the opportunities you experience, the healthcare you get, the education you receive. More Than Money breaks down why the rich seem to be getting richer while the rest of us are struggling to just get by.
With vivid, energetic illustrations, the use of graphs and charts, and tips for how to investigate topics of interest, readers learn the most important issues and ideas in economics to better understand the consequences of inequality.
