Wealth inequality can also extend to nations; Hilary Fordwich breaks down the situation as certain countries grow while others continue to trail behind. Trinity Chavez tackles the richest zip codes while Dan Cohen takes us to the poorest. All this and more on Boom Bust!

Dear readers and commenters,

We have implemented a new engine for our comment section. We hope the transition goes smoothly for all of you. Unfortunately, the comments made before the change have been lost due to a technical problem. We are working on restoring them, and hoping to see you fill up the comment section with new ones. You should still be able to log in to comment using your social-media profiles, but if you signed up under an RT profile before, you are invited to create a new profile with the new commenting system.

Sorry for the inconvenience, and looking forward to your future comments,

RT Team.
