Description

The Inequality Calculator is an application based on the massive data analysis of the income of citizens of 16 countries that reveals, in an interactive and comparative way, the enormous income gaps that exist between the poor and multimillionaires of Latin America and the Caribbean. The INEQUALITY CALCULATOR is based on an algorithm that divides a household's monthly income among its members and compares this with the country's population ordered from poorest to richest in 10 groups, or deciles, plus the group of multimillionaires. The result of these calculations will provide the user with an estimate of the time he or she would need to work to attain the average monthly income of a multimillionaire and will also allow comparison to the country's other income groups. The timeframe—some will need to work for several centuries to achieve this income—will highlight, in an amusing but direct fashion, the insuperable gap that separates the ordinary citizen and the multimillionaire.
