Book launch: Peak Inequality - Britain’s ticking time bomb

Jul 18, 2018, 06:50 AM

When we think of economic inequality we tend to think of a trend that is ever rising and destined to continue rising; that is far from inevitable. There are many statistics today that point at Britain being at a peak of inequality. However, having allowed the gaps between us to grow so wide has had dire implications for our health, housing, education, demography, politics and future. Danny Dorling highlights these and discusses what it will take to begin to descend from the peak of inequality. Recorded at the Old Theatre, London School of Economics, July 17th 2018, and introduced by Dr Jonathan Hopkin of the LSE.
