Hans Rosling speakerIncome inequality and the gap between the richest and poorest is one of the items at the top of the agenda for the World Economic Forum currently taking place in Davos. This is because in developed and developing countries alike, the poorest half of the population often controls less than 10% of its wealth.

While it is true that around the world economic growth is picking up pace, deep challenges remain, including poverty, environmental degradation, persistent unemployment, political instability, violence and conflict. These problems are often closely related to inequality.

Swedish Professor Hans Rosling is a statistician who specialises in data visualisation and in tracking income disparities around the world. As global and business leaders meet in the small Swiss ski resort, he uses snowballs to explain how inequality in the world is changing.
