What the Intelligence Squared Inequality Debate Missed - The Politics of Inequality
Last night, I had the honor of attending an Intelligence Squared debate on the proposition that, 'Income 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.
