Powerful photo of inequality: let them eat ‘bolo’

Not that inequality is limited to the developing world… (The U.S. is experiencing record high levels of inequality, whose results are described here and here.)

But Revista (the Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies at Harvard’s  Latin American Review) has a powerful image on their Spring 2007 cover which can be seen here.  (It is a photo taken by Tuca Vieira of luxury buildings and tennis courts in Sao Paulo’s affluent Morumbi neighborhood, check to jowl with the misnamed Paraisopolis (“Paradise City”), one of the city’s favelas.)
