Inequality increased in Canada throughout the 1990s. Despite government programs designed to confront the problem, more people than ever lived below the poverty line, with the young, women and visible minorities at greatest risk.
Richer and Poorer describes the problem of inequality and explains why it is so hard to eradicate. The authors discuss why public policy and programs have not succeeded in ending gender, racial or other types of inequality, and why, without action, inequality in Canada will only increase
Richer and Poorer is an acute and detailed analysis of the disparities of wealth and poverty as experienced in 1990s Canada.
