Allison Schrager and Gary Stevenson

Economists Allison Schrager and Gary Stevenson talk about wealth inequality on Twitter Spaces, October 12, 2022.

The richest 10% of people own 76% of all wealth in the world—and the poorest half just 2%. For some, this wealth gap is an indicator of a broken system; for others, it’s an incentive for competition. Economists Gary Stevenson and Allison Schrager joined Doha Debates on Twitter Spaces to debate and ask: When it comes to wealth inequality, how much is too much?

The conversation took place on October 12, 2022, and was hosted by Maryam Moshiri.
