The Great Divide
Income inequality is surging, and there are few countries where it is rising faster than the United States. The distance between rich and poor is greater in America than nearly all other developed countries, making the US a leader in a trend that economists warn has dire consequences. This project was filmed by Ed Kashi and edited by Talking Eyes Media for the GlobalPost. This is part of a larger series by the Global Post, which set out on a reporting journey to get at the ‘ground truth’ of inequality through the lenses of education, race, immigration, health care, government, labor and natural resources.
