Throughout the recent election season, Americans’ concerns about the economy were on the rise. After the election, people continue to raise questions about economic inequality and whether it is good or bad for the country. Yaron Brook, executive director at Ayn Rand Institute and coauthor of the book “Equality Is Unfair: America’s Misguided Fight Against Income Inequality,” and Jonathan Haughton, a senior economist at The Beacon Hill Institute and economics professor at Suffolk University, engaged in a heated debate about economic inequality. Jim Stergios of the Pioneer Institute moderated the event.
This debate was recorded and hosted by Ford Hall Forum on November 14, 2016. For more about the Ford Hall Forum, see https://sites.suffolk.edu/fordhallforum/ and https://www.youtube.com/user/fordhallforum1908.
