Today I'm launching the Inequality Calculator, an exciting interactive tool that shows you how much you earn compared to everyone else in New Zealand - and how much better or worse off you'd be if income was more evenly shared.
Built in partnership with the New Zealand Council of Christian Social Services, it's a simple way for people to understand how growing income gaps affect them. So please give it a go - you may be surprised by the results. And forward it onto your colleagues and friends - especially those who may not yet have engaged with the arguments around inequality.
Meanwhile, Bridget Williams Books has re-issued its short guide to inequality in New Zealand, 'The Inequality Debate', incorporating the very latest figures published in July. It's in stores now.
Finally, some election dates for your diaries. I'm chairing a debate for the Auckland Central candidates, on Waiheke Island next Monday (September 8th) at 6pm. And there's a forum on inequality - with seven candidates, including current and future MPs - in Wellington on Tuesday September 16th, 6.30pm at Connolly Hall. Come along and find out what the parties have to say about the growing crisis of inequality.
