Is Inequality Fair?
We’re told that the gap between the poor and the rich has widened. Many decry the “injustice” of income and wealth inequality. But is it actually a problem and are the proposed remedies truly just? What is a fair “distribution” of income and wealth?
Yaron Brook, executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute, takes on these and related issues and argues that a genuinely laissez-faire capitalist society is, in fact, the only system of fairness, that is, justice.
Dr. Yaron Brook is Executive Director of the Ayn Rand Institute, and co-author of the US Bestseller ‘Free Market Revolution: How Ayn Rand’s Ideas Can End Big Government’. Born and raised in Israel he served as a first sergeant in Israeli military intelligence and holds a BSc in civil engineering, as well as an MBA and PhD in finance from the University of Texas at Austin.
