About the Lecture

While inequality between countries is falling, inequality within countries is rising – relative poverty is changing from a distant issue to one on our doorsteps. Drawing on his 2015 book, “The Globalization of Inequality”, François will present compelling evidence of these trends. Grounded in both economic theory and his extensive international experience at the World Bank, he will explore a series of measures: a top rate income tax of ~70%; higher wealth taxes; and social initiatives, to address these issues.

About the Speaker

François Bourguignon is former Chief Economist and Vice President of the World Bank, and is currently Professor of Economics and the Paris School of Economics. He has published extensively on poverty and income distribution, as well on broader labour market, macro-economic and social policy issues. More.
