Oxfam is pleased to invite you to join Anand Giridharadas, author of Winners Take All and Oxfam International Executive Director Winnie Byanyima for a discussion on economic inequality moderated by Felix Salmon, Chief Financial Correspondent for Axios.
Title: Shifting the Terms of the Debate on Global Inequality: What more do we need to do?
About this Event
Although inequality has been talked about a lot – from the campaign trail to the yearly gathering in Davos – real and meaningful action to tackle it has been missing in Washington, and the gap between the richest and the rest of us continues to widen. Oxfam’s global inequality campaign has worked alongside partners to help change the terms of the debate on inequality and fight for specific policy reforms on wages, tax, gender equality and elite capture of the political process.
The debate in the US and globally has slowly shifted from a conversation over whether inequality is a dangerous threat to social cohesion and poverty alleviation, to an increasingly robust debate over visions to address it and specific policy proposals to tackle extreme wealth concentration. Join Oxfam for a conversation that will focus on how this debate is shifting and what more needs to be done to enact the big ideas needed for change.
Hosted by Abby Maxman, President of Oxfam America, the panel will feature Oxfam International Executive Director Winnie Byanyima, Anand Giridharadas, author of Winners Take All, and will be moderated by Felix Salmon, Chief Financial Correspondent for Axios.
