Why is inequality raising? Is an equal society possible? Our Reading Group are bringing together three key locally-based academics on Thursday 4th September at Friends Meeting House, Friargate from 7pm (facebook). Kate Pickett and Richard Wilkinson, authors of the Spirit Level, will be joined by Rowland Atkinson, Chair in Inclusive Societies at University of Sheffield.
Discussion will centre around three recent books – Thomas Picketty’s ‘Capital in the 21st Century’, David Harvey’s ’17 Contradictions and the End of Capitalism’, as well as ‘the Spirit Level’. No knowledge necessary, but curiosity definitely required!
