AVANT-PROPOS

Les écarts de richesse se sont creusés de façon disproportionnée. Des milliards de personnes restent bloquées en bas de l’échelle, privées de leurs droits fondamentaux et sans espoir d’une vie meilleure, tandis qu’en haut, les ressources et les privilèges croissent à un rythme effréné. Le monde s’éloigne ainsi un peu plus chaque jour de la vision d’égalité exprimée dans la Déclaration universelle des droits de l’homme.

PRÓLOGO

En el mundo actual, la disparidad en la distribución de la riqueza ha aumentado de manera alarmante. Miles de millones de personas se mantienen en los quintiles más pobres, con lo que se vulneran sus derechos humanos y se truncan sus posibilidades de una vida mejor. En el extremo opuesto, los recursos y privilegios crecen a un ritmo desenfrenado que aleja al mundo del ideal de igualdad consagrado en la Declaración Universal de Derechos Humanos.

FOREWORD

In today’s world, gaps in wealth have grown shockingly wide. Billions of people linger at the bottom, denied their human rights and prospects for a better life. At the top, resources and privileges accrue at explosive rates, pushing the world ever further from the vision of equality embodied in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
