Speaker(s): David Willetts MP
Chair: Professor John Hills
Recorded on 16 February 2010 in Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House.
David Willetts will analyse the distribution of income and wealth between different generations in Britain. He will investigate why the baby boomer generation have done particularly well for both income and wealth. He will then look at why the younger generation face much less favourable economic circumstances. Drawing on his new book The Pinch he will firmly place the issue of fairness between the generations on the political agenda.
