How Rich Should Anyone Be?
Mr Jason Phan
Is it wrong for eight men to have as much wealth as 3.6 billion people? If so, what should we do about it? This module offers a deep dive into the nature and ethics of wealth inequality. It has two parts. We first address a theoretical question When, if ever, is inequality morally wrong? This lays the foundation for the second part, where we examine the causes and consequences of wealth inequality, along with possible responses. The aim is to critically examine our attitudes and policies as we strive for a just and practical distribution of wealth.
