Welcome to

woodmarjorieOn behalf of the staff at, I would like to welcome you to our website for data, analysis, and commentary on wealth and income inequality as well as actions you can take to help end inequality.

Since 2011, has provided cutting-edge analysis and research while also serving as an online digest of recent news items, data, and literature on economic inequality. In 2015 and beyond, we are excited to continue serving as the premiere portal for data and analysis on inequality while also expanding our horizons.

The expanded website includes a new lineup of contributors from around the globe, the latest data and research, a new blog that will be regularly updated with timely material, and an “Action” tab where our visitors—YOU!—can take action to reduce inequality and promote a fair economy for everyone.

Our mission at remains the same: to serve as the premiere portal for people like you seeking information and analysis on economic inequality and, ultimately, to help end inequality in the United States and abroad.  We believe it is time for our nation to address the extreme inequalities that are undermining all that we hold dear.
