What the Intelligence Squared Inequality Debate Missed - The Politics of Inequality

pdf (411.77 KB)

Last night, I had the honor of attending an Intelligence Squared debate on the proposition that, '€œIncome Inequality Impairs the American Dream of Upward Mobility.'€ It was an engrossing debate. Affirming the motion were Nick Hanauer, a venture capitalist know for his pro-minimum wage stance, and Elise Gould, a senior economist at the Economic Policy Institute. Against the motion, were Scott Winship of the Manhattan Institute and former Bain Capital partner Edward Conard.
