Examples of basic inequalities in the World “today” compared with 1990 (typically).
The gaps between but also within countries are huge. And for some indicators the gaps have even increased.
The general development shows:
- Bigger gaps for some indicators in wealth
- Reduced gaps in indicators concerning health, education, living conditions – valid for nearly all countries, but still big differences
- Big gaps within countries
