Speaker(s): Dr Cristobal Young, Ed Miliband MP, Dr Andrew Summers
Chair: Professor Nicola Lacey

Recorded on 20 November 2017 at Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building

If taxes rise, will they leave? In his new book, Cristobal Young publishes the findings from the first-ever large-scale study of migration of the world’s richest individuals, drawing on special access to over 45mil US tax returns, together with Forbes rich lists. He shows that contrary to popular opinion, although the rich have the resources and capacity to flee high-tax places, their actual migration is surprisingly limited. Place still matters, even in today’s globalised world. Cristobal Young (@cristobalyoung5) is Assistant Professor of Sociology, Stanford University. Ed Miliband (@Ed_Miliband) is the Member of Parliament for Doncaster North and was leader of the Labour Party from 2010-2015. Andrew Summers (@summers_ad) is Assistant Professor of Law, LSE.
