Go Dutch to increase income equality by 99%

This is another important, short but clear, animation from Inequality Briefing.  If the rich continue to get richer and richer while the rest of us get poorer then unless we change, we are sleep walking into a disaster.

"The film highlights how: pay for top bosses nearly doubled over the past decade, while ordinary workers wages remained the same

a FTSE 100 CEO earns four times as much in one year as the average worker does in their entire lifetime

if total incomes in the UK were divided as evenly as in Denmark or the Netherlands, 99 per cent of households would be better off by nearly £3,000 per year".

 (Gentle hint to Inequality Briefing - I do think it would help if you referenced the data).
