Chapter 4 addresses wealth inequality – how deep it is and why it is increasing. Our speakers challenge the myth of meritocracy and explain how the system relies on economic injustice and the resulting waste of working-class talent. The decline in trade union membership and the ability of organised labour to reduce inequality is seen as a major factor, among others.
