Pretty amazing to read this UN special report from May 2018 (digitallibrary.un.org/record/1).

Haven't read the whole thing but to name a few points:
- 44% of adults can't cover an emergency expense costing $400
- 40 million live in poverty
- 18.5 million live in extreme poverty
- 5.3 million live in Third World conditions of absolute poverty
- Highest rate of income inequality among Western countries
- Highest incarceration rate in the world
- Highest levels of obesity in the developed world
