Do the 1% Get 40% of the Pizza? Income Inequality in America Beck 201

Income inequality is a hot-button issue in contemporary America, but "solving" it may not address poverty in the ways we think it will. Join economist Nikolai Wnezel (Flagler College) and Marxist theorist Kristian Braekkan (Gustavus Adolphus College) for a lively discussion examining how income inequality and poverty are related-- from two very different perspectives.

Come join the discussion, in anticipation of the Nobel Conference 2016, "In Search of Economic Balance." Welcome comments by Nobel Conference 2016 chair, Larry Wohl. Pizza and soft drinks will be served.
