New Series of Mini Lectures on Inequality

One of the most discussed topics at the 6th Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences was the issue of rising global inequality. In order to tackle inequality in developing nations, new policies are needed, but many factors have to be taken into account. To shed light on some of these aspects, we have produced a new series of Mini Lectures on inequality, which explain economic theories around the subtopics redistribution, lending and globalisation and feature perspectives of laureates Sir James Mirrlees, Joseph Stiglitz and Eric Maskin. In the mediatheque, the three short videos are available in English as well as in German.
