Wed 15 November 2017,

A lot of attention has been paid to the distribution of income, but what about Britain’s far more unequally spread wealth? From being able to get on the housing ladder only if you have home-owning parents, to the concentration of great wealth right at the very top and big shifts between the generations, the gaps between rich and poor in Britain are chasms that shape our country in a host of ways. What is known about the distribution of wealth – and what could, or should, be done about it?

Our panel, chaired by Romesh Vaitilingam, includes Torsten Bell (Resolution Foundation), John Hills (LSE) and Karen Rowlingson (University of Birmingham).

In association with
