Tackling inequality is a political choice, not an economic problem.
In a country that has long prided itself on being the land of the ”fair go” the gap between those who have much, and those who have little continues to grow.
The nature and extent of inequality is the choice of policy makers. We have the capacity to either reduce inequality or to exacerbate it.
