About the Book:
South Africa is the most unequal country in the world, with a Gini coefficient of 0.63 in 2015. In terms of wealth, the top percentile households hold 70.9% while the bottom 60% holds a mere 7%. 76% of South Africans face an imminent threat of falling below the poverty line, while a minority live in luxury. Confronting Inequality collects a series contributions that discuss the nature of South Africa’s inequality problem and the means by which it might be resolved.
