The richest 6 people in the world have more wealth than the poorest half of the human population combined. The income gap between the West and the Rest has tripled in size since 1960. Why is global inequality getting worse?

This talk explores how our world came to be so divided, from the onset of colonialism to the trade system of today, shedding light on a global economy that's been designed to benefit a few powerful countries at the expense of most of the rest of the world.

How can we reverse this trend? For decades, economists have claimed that all we need is growth. But we're learning now that endless growth is leading us headlong into climate change and ecological catastrophe. Where do we go from here?

Dr Jason Hickel disrupts sacred economic orthodoxies and serves up fresh, radical ideas for how we can create a fairer world.
