Capitalism and wealth accumulation: Does inequality matter?
Hosted by the Institute of Economic Affairs and Bloomberg
Wednesday 23 July 2014, 12.30-2.00pm.
The Institute of Economic Affairs and Bloomberg invite you to a panel discussion on Capitalism and wealth accumulation: Does inequality matter? The event is to be held on Wednesday 23 July 2014, between 12.30pm and 2.00pm.
The event will begin with a lunch reception followed by a panel discussion and Q&A session.
The financial collapse, ongoing austerity measures and a squeeze on living standards has resulted in a feeling of animosity towards capitalism, wealth accumulation and excessive bonuses. This theme is highlighted in the recent popularity of Thomas Piketty’s new book ‘Capital in the Twenty-First Century’. But does the existence of inequality matter?
