30/06/2015. FAES Foundation has launched on Tuesday 30, its strategic report Inequality, Opportunities and the Welfare Society in Spain, which claims that talking about inequality in our country is talking about the performance of the welfare state. In this sense, FAES notes that the duality of the labour market, the performance of the education system, institutional quality and the impact of these three issues on the effectiveness of the welfare state are the main factors explaining inequality in Spain. However, it also states that, overall, Spain is in the intermediate positions of all indicators of inequality, as wealth, consumption, income and poverty rates compared to the EU 15 countries.
