Full Event Details:

In this masterclass we will be exploring together issues of wealth equality in Britain today. How unequal is our society? Should we care? Does it matter? Can anything be done about it even if it does matter? In particular, we will focus on the role taxation plays in affecting wealth equality. We will explore questions such as ‘How does the UK tax system affect people’s wealth in modern Britain?’, ‘Do we have the right mixes of taxes in the UK to create a fair system of contributions from everyone - rich and poor?’, ‘What changes are being suggested to improve our tax system? Are they sensible?’ Students should come along prepared to participate in the debate and offer opinions in what we hope will be an interesting and interactive session.
