Overview

In the second video on regional inequalities in the United Kingdom, we discussed how the UK has become so unequal and what is being done to tackle the inequality. Inequality in the United Kingdom has been on the rise for a long time, especially since the Global Financial Crisis. This is due to the fact that more prosperous regions tend to be more resilient from an economic shock, allowing them to recover quicker and develop faster than the areas that are not as resilient, increasing inequality over time.

Key learning objectives:

  • Outline what needs to be done to tackle the problem

  • Understand how the United Kingdom became so unequal

  • Discuss the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic and Brexit on inequality
