Dear all leaders of the world,
We have an issue in the world that we live in today that is hurting our global economy, human rights and crime. It has been an issue for a very, very long time and it affects everybody, whether it is directed at you or not, or whether you are directing it at somebody else. That issue is called INEQUALITY.

How exactly does inequality affect our global economy ?
For one thing, it divides people into certain groups around the world, instead of everybody cooperating and working together. By discriminating towards newcomers to countries, businesses suffer by not being open to different skills and perspectives. By supporting newcomers instead of discriminating against them, we create more opportunities for our society to succeed.

How does inequality affect our human rights ?
Countries are different in how they view human rights, each country has different views and opinions on laws regarding human rights, and each country has different laws regarding human rights. The Great Britain has something called the Equality and Human Rights Commission. It is a non-departmental public body in England and Wales. The commision has the responsibility of the promotion and enforcement of equality and non-discrimination laws in England, Scotland and Wales. It has taken over the responsibilities of the Commision for Racial Equality, The Equal Opportunities Commision and the Disability Rights Commision. It is also responsible for other aspects of equality law. Some of these responsibilities include age, sexual orientation and religion or belief. It is a national human rights institution and looks to protect the human rights in England and Wales and is independent from the government. The Equality and Human Rights Commision is a great example of what the world should establish more of, companies or perhaps governments dedicated to protecting human rights. This is something we should strive for, protecting human rights.

How does inequality affect crime ?
In Mexico, municipalities with lower inequality, had low rates of crime, but municipalities with a high rate of inequality, had high rates of crime. From 2005 to 2010, about thirty percent of municipalities witnessed an increase in inequality in Mexico. This is only one of what may be thousands of examples of how inequality increases crime throughout the whole wide world. There are many factors that play a role in an increase in crime, and inequality is at the top of the list. In the United States Income Inequality has been soaring, but crime rates have been in decline, which is weird, there is a ton of crime in the USA. This is because there is a lot of crime not being reported. This is just a weird case, because crime rates and inequality correlate within and between countries. So it is a fact that inequality INDUCES crime rates.

In conclusion, I believe that inequality is one of the biggest, if not the biggest, issue that we have in the world today and you must address it. It affects our global economy, human rights and crime and it is a big issue. I really hope that you take action on this issue and do something to help make this stop.
