Addressing inequality of opportunity in Asia and the Pacific

While the aggregate costs of inequality of outcome can be high, the impact of inequality is perhaps more corrosive at the individual or the household level. So far, research and headlines on inequality have emphasized the most glaring contrasts: the lavish lives of billionaires compared with the uncertainty, stagnant wages and exploitation that are often experienced by the poorest people in society. Global analysts have tended to overlook the impact of income and wealth inequality on accessing basic opportunities, including quality education and health care, meaningful work and decent living conditions.
