Does inequality matter?

Professor Thomas Pogge, Columbia University and the Australian National University, and Professor Robert Wade, London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), will debate the issue of inequality in a public event at LSE on Tuesday 26 April.

Inequality is one of the most contested topics of our time. But, the panel will ask, does inequality matter and if so, why? Can it be argued that poverty and social exclusion are far more significant than inequality?

  • Thomas Pogge is associate professor at Columbia University and professorial research fellow at the Australian National University.
  • Robert Wade is professor of political economy and development at LSE.

Professor David Held, LSE, will chair this lecture, which is part of a series of Ralph Miliband Lectures on Inequalities: dimensions and challenges.

Does Inequality Matter? is on Tuesday 26 April at 6.30pm in the Old Theatre, Old Building, LSE, Houghton Street, London WC2A. This event is free and open to all with no ticket required.

Ends
