'Sustainable Development Goals and Income Inequality'
Dutch Minister of International Trade and Development Cooperation, Sigrid Kaag receives first copy of book on the inequality of the Sustainable Development Goals
Edited by Professor Peter van Bergeijk and Emeritus Professor Rolph van der Hoeven, this book argues that the treatment of inequality in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is wholly insufficient due to their failure to recognise the growing difference between the income of work and the income of capital and the super rich, and the strain this places on a country’s social fabric.
It argues that the economic debate in the policy institutions and global fora should not only to be based on current statistics of GDP and other economic phenomena, but also need to include alternative measures of development.
