Max Rashbrooke - Inequality in New Zealand: why don't we talk more about wealth?

 Registration is closed for this event
“Occupy said the problem was the 1% in control. Now they are being reduced to the 0.1% who have the real control. We need to find a way out of this capture or we'll all go down with that last ton of coal”

These are not good times for too many people. Inequality is a destructive feature of the way we live in New Zealand. Poverty has become a topic of concern and renewed conversations. We were keen recently to debate the work of Wilkinson and Pickett and have made Max Rashbrooke’s book on the New Zealand setting a best seller. The narrative for orthodox economic thinking is changing.

Now Thomas Picketty has made wealth inequality an extension of this concern. His research spells out how the concentration of wealth in the hands of so few people will lead to the death of production and a failure of capitalism. See this page and search the links included there.
