The founder of free online learning platform edX, set up by Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), has spoken out against the US State department’s decision to block people in Iran, Cuba and Sudan from accessing a new advanced course on aircraft design.

A lot has happened in the five years since we published our book, The Spirit Level. New Labour were still perhaps too relaxed about people becoming “filthy rich”. And there was an assumption that inequality mattered only if it increased poverty, and that for most people “real” poverty was a thing of the past.
This sounds like something out of a Dan Brown book but it isn't: The whole internet is controlled by seven actual, physical keys. The Guardian's James Ball
