Original Text

Inequality must be seen as the global epidemic that it is. From the boy who cannot afford to dream because of the disappointment that could come with it to the girl that skips school in order to sell snacks in traffic, just to fund her school fees. It is clear that inequality is at the center of many of the world's problems, affecting not just the bottom 40 percent of us, but everyone.
