In inclusive economies, opportunities abound, standards of living increase for all, and prosperity is widely shared. But we are far from realizing this vision. Economic inequality is pervasive, and in recent decades, it has grown dramatically worldwide and undercut growth. The foundation works in some of the most economically unequal countries in the world.
But as a growing body of evidence shows, this inequality is not inevitable. It is strongly influenced by the rules of the game: public policies and business models that affect how well economies function and how they allocate opportunities and rewards. Some of the most important rules shape the nature of work, social protection, and the allocation of investment capital. These rules too often drive economies that exclude many and discourage promising innovation.
