Please join us for a fascinating talk by the authors ofThe Trouble with Billionaires: Why Too Much Money at the Top is Bad for Everyone. The glittering lives of billionaires may seem like a harmless source of entertainment but such concentrated economic power reverberates throughout society, threatening the quality of life and the very functioning of democracy. Its no accident that the United States claims the most billionaires but suffers among the highest rates of infant mortality and crime, the shortest life expectancy, as well as the lowest rates of social mobility and electoral political participation in the developed world. Linda McQuaig and Neil Brooks spark the debate about the kind of society we want.
Linda McQuaig is an award-winning journalist and author. Neil Brooks is a professor of tax law at Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto.
