Episode 2 of 2

Jacques Peretti investigates how the super-rich are transforming Britain. In the final part, he looks at how inequality was pinpointed as a business opportunity.

Britain has more billionaires per head than anywhere else, yet we're also the most unequal nation in Europe. In this two-part series, Jacques Peretti investigates how the super-rich are transforming Britain.

In episode two, Jacques investigates how inequality was pinpointed as a business opportunity before the crash by the biggest bank in America, as a way of making money from a more divided society. Jacques also looks at how our work life was made deliberately more unstable in the 70s to drive a new 80s profit culture, and how an acceptance of huge executive bonuses was manufactured.

Jacques meets the billionaires who have gained, those that are fearful for the society being created, and the people whose decisions are changing the very way we live.
