IS LEVELLING UP REALLY LEVELLING DOWN? THE GREAT INEQUALITY DEBATE

Can the free market provide adequately for all or should we demand more pay for the hardest, worst paid jobs? The speakers in this engaging short debate at the Battle of Ideas festival don’t agree, but do raise plenty for us to consider.

Apologies for sound issues, one of the audience mics is not working.

The speakers are: Hilary Salt – Actuary; founder, First Actuarial Don Watkins – Author, Free Market Revolution, Equal Is Unfair and I Am Justice.

The Chair is Kevin Rooney – Convenor, AoI Education Forum; politics teacher; co-author, The Blood Stained Poppy
