    Ways to achieve reduced inequalities

    It is imposible to achieve sustainable development if we exclude any part of the population. Inequalties like income, gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, age, disability, class or ethnicity, that, unfortunally, continue to exist in the world's population.
    So to have reduced inequalities we should:
    • Eliminate discriminatory policies, laws and practicies.
    • Economic, social and political policies need to be universal and pay more attention to the needs of disadvantaged and opressed communities.
    If we all work together we can achive equality for everyone. Because everyone deserves a life of dignity and opportunity.

    Technological developments increase production efficiency and automation while at the same time reducing production and transportation expenses. As a result, while poverty decreased relatively with the increase in productivity in production, the fact that most of the revenues obtained through the development of new production styles went to the owners of the capital further increased the income inequality. In addition, as a result of technological developments, the fact that robots started to do the work done by unskilled workers decreased the demand for unskilled workers, which led to a decrease in the income of this group.
