The Debt Dialogues [Episode 51]: Don Watkins on Challenging the Inequality Alarmists

The Debt Dialogues is a weekly podcast that aims to educate young people about the welfare state and how it will affect their future. In this episode, my colleague Amanda Maxham sits in as guest host, as we discuss my recent article, co-authored with Yaron Brook, “Turning the Tables on the Inequality Alarmists.” Topics covered include:

  • The inescapable conflict between economic equality and political equality
  • The motives behind the campaign against economic inequality
  • Why most critiques of the inequality alarmists fail
  • What’s wrong with the notion of “equality of opportunity”
