Information

Globalization might have lifted millions out of poverty in Asia – but did this happen at the expense of the middle class in the West?

The Asia Global Institute marks the launch of the AsiaGlobal Online Journal, with talks and discussions on findings from the World Inequality Report 2018. This global study takes an in-depth look at inequality and proposes possible solutions for a sustainable future. The Report is the work of five authors including Chancel and Thomas Piketty, writer of Capital in the Twenty-first Century.
