Upscaling is a catalyst for inequality, researchers argue
The laws of nature are what drive wealth inequality within a given society — unless society takes action to counteract their effect, such as by adopting laws on taxation. The larger the scale, the greater the inequality. Today’s globalization trend is thus a process that naturally reinforces inequality. At the same time, globalization also makes it more difficult to provide societal counterbalance. This conclusion is drawn by researchers in a publication on inequality that combines insights gleaned from nature and society.
