"Thanks for meeting me for lunch here at Global.org. I'd like to discuss wealth inequality in the world."

"We investment bankers take that very seriously."

"Let me show you by means of this cake, which we'll use as a pie chart on wealth distribution. ... As you can see, perversely most folk—the 99%—get just this small slice. The rich 1% get all the rest! This could lead to social unrest and economic meltdown! ... HEY!"

"Sorry, what was that son? Your pie chart is delicious!"

The world can be a complex place. See how Frankie and his colleagues at Global.org grapple with the thorny public policy issues of our time, in this cartoon strip.
