The Munk Debate - Taxing the Rich


How should society respond to growing inequality when many governments are pressed for revenue?

Be it resolved: Should the rich be taxed more? That's the resolution at this spring's Munk Debate. Featured are Paul Krugman, New York Times columnist, Nobel Prize winner, and global authority on economic inequality; George Papandreou, the current President of the Socialist International and the past Prime Minister of Greece; Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives and presidential candidate; and Arthur Laffer, economic adviser to President Regan.  The debate took place in Toronto at Roy Thompson Hall on May 30th. The debate was moderated by Rudyard Griffiths.
