Eat the Rich! – Responding to Income Inequality

“Eat the rich” has been increasing used as a rallying cry in response to the struggles of the working class as the social divide between the rich and working class grows wider. It is an abbreviation of a quote often attributed to the political philosopher and leading figure in the French Revolution, Jean Jacques Rousseau.


In this webinar, we explore the possible responses governments can adopt to reduce income inequality and critique them from an economic perspective.
