Visions of Inequality  

Branko Milanovic 

Imagine an IMD event in which a high-level panel is invited to debate on inequality. By a miraculous combination of holograms and AI, six key figures will sit next to one another on stage in front of a live audience: François Quesnay, Adam Smith, David Ricardo, Karl Marx, Vilfredo Pareto, and Simon Kuznets. As a well-informed, sometimes humorous, and always lively moderator, Milanovic allows the panelists to make their points and share their views on what remains one of the main challenges in the global economy. A stimulating read for all of us trying to squeeze interesting narratives out of data and for anyone interested in global issues.
