The Great Divide

The Great Divide

The Great Divide is a GlobalPost collection of stories, graphics and videos that explores the nature, causes, and consequences of growing economic inequality. Although primarily centered on the U.S., it also addresses inequality in diverse locations, including cities in the UK, Brazil, Nigeria, India, Thailand, and Russia. Of special interest is the comparative examination of paired U.S. cities with foreign cities having the same level of economic inequality.
