Here’s what’s on this evening at the Auckland Uni Economics Group. Why not head along?
On Monday the NZ Herald revealed that ANZ New Zealand's David Hisco is NZ’s top-paid chief executive with a total pay package worth $4.1 million. That's a lot of money! It's cases like this that fuel the debate about income inequality, about whether someone should earn so much more than the average worker.
- How can economics inform this debate?
- Is economic inequality something to be concerned about?
- Or something to embrace!?
- And do policies adopted by those concerned about inequality actually lead to the poorest
In tonight's seminar we address these questions by drawing on powerful economic ideas and theories. While economic inequality is clearly of concern to many today (Piketty's best-selling Capital in the Twenty First Century is a case in point), we shall see that many of the great thinkers and ideas on the subject are largely ignored today.
