INCOME AND WEALTH INEQUALITY

Everyone is talking about income and wealth inequality. But what is meant by “inequality”
and how is it measured. What are the causes and implications of growing economic
inequalities? What impact does it have on society? What form does it take in different
countries? Each lecture will include a screening of a movie or documentary on this topic
followed by an in-depth discussion and explanation of key issues.
Films to be shown will include:
Inequality for All
Where to Invade Next
Saving Capitalism
