The global financial crisis has been a hotly contested political and economic topic for the last few years but how much do we really know about the forms of inequality that such crises produce and perpetuate? Göran Therborn argues in The Killing Fields of Inequality that human development is not simply determined by how wealthy an individual or nation is, but by an individuals’ ability to function fully as a human being within the context of their environment; being able to choose a life that promotes dignity and well-being under the fundamental conditions of human experience and knowledge. In short, it’s not all about the money, finds Katherine Williams.
