Overview

Have baby boomers had it all? Can we create a fair deal for everyone? Find out

From religious leaders to heads of state, everyone is talking about economic inequality. But what form does this take in different countries? What impact does it have on society? And why does it matter to you?

This online course will explore these growing concerns about wealth and income inequality.

You’ll scrutinise claims that the baby boomer generation has had it all, while social and political changes have left younger generations struggling.

You’ll examine the causes and implications of growing economic inequalities and what individuals, communities and governments can do about them.

The course does not assume any prior knowledge of economics and can be enjoyed by anyone interested in social issues.

I got started with this company about a week ago and everything is going exactly as expected. It's a perfect match for beginners and for those who doesn't have much time to trade by themselves still don't want to miss out some opportunities on the market. Highly recommend!
