Is it possible to eliminate inequality?
A high level UN panel thinks so. They’ve made a call to ‘Leave No One Behind’. But what does this mean? And if we eradicate ‘inequality’ as opposed ‘poverty’, what are the implications?
The panel is timed to coincide with the UN Secretary-General’s report to the United Nations General Assembly on the Millennium Development Goals and the Post-2015 development agenda. Singapore is a member of a key UN working group that may shape this new agenda. What are its positions?
