,,უთანასწორობა” 5 ლექციისგან შემდგარი კურსია, სადაც ახალი ეკონომიკური აზროვნების ეკონომისტები არჯუნ ჯეიადევი (Azim Premji University) და ბლაკნო მილანოვიჩი (CUNY Graduate Center) საუბრობენ, თუ რა არის უთანასწორობა? რა საფუძვლები აქვს დღეს არსებულ გლობალურ უთანასწორობას და ვინ არის პასუხისმგებელი მასზე? როგორ შეიძლება გავზომოთ უთანასწორობა და სხვა თემებზე.
თითოეულ ლექციას თან ახლავს დამატებითი საკითხავი მასალები.
