"Is Inequality Fair?" ft. Yaron Brook & Daniel Markovits [Live-Streamed Event]

Join us in the Yale Law School Auditorium at 6:30pm for a panel discussion featuring Yaron Brook (Executive Chairman, the Ayn Rand Institute) and Daniel Markowits (Professor, Yale Law School).  Food will be served beforehand from 6-6:30pm, in Room 120 (down the hall from the auditorium).  If you will be out of town, tune in for the Live Stream at:  https://t.co/mJ9eQmmEEq 

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 chairman of the Ayn Rand Institute, discusses these and related issues and argues that a genuinely laissez-faire capitalist society is, in fact, the only system of fairness, that is, justice.  Professor Daniel Markovits, distinguished for his work particularly in law and economics, will offer his take on inequality.

We encourage the greater Yale University community to attend this event.  There will be time reserved at the end of the discussion for questions from the audience.
