Is Equal Fair? With Yaron Brook & James Galbraith
Inequality in our country is said to be greater than ever. The rich are getting richer and it’s nearly impossible to rise from the bottom. But what if instead of fighting inequality, we actually celebrated it? This Chicago Ideas debate will look at inequality through the lens of the American Dream posing the question: Is equal fair? Author of the forthcoming book Equal is Unfair and executive director of The Ayn Rand Institute Yaron Brook faces off with James Galbraith author of The Predator State, Inequality and Instability.

What to expect: This riveting and timely debate will dig into the origins and economics of equality, its social impact and long-term outcomes. Will equality prevail? That’s up to you! We’ll be polling the audience before and after the debate to determine which speaker’s argument holds more sway.
