A nice blog from Tim Harford next how governments could start to address inequality, using Finland as an example:

A wonkish this one, but I’ve included it, because it’s well argued. If you’ve know any economics, you’ll probably be OK:

And finally, I found this blog on self-employment by Flipchart Rick interesting. Lots of nice charts as well:
