Income inequality: Where economics and social justice collide

Printer-friendly version
An event sponsored by the Institute of Public Administration of Canada will address the widening gap between the very wealthy and everyone else.


Osgoode Professional Development Centre
1 Dundas street W ROOM C
Toronto , ON M5G 1Z3
Event date: 
16 Jun 2014 - 10:00am - 12:00pm


The session will address such questions as:

  • Is income inequality the historical norm or is it something that comes and goes, driven by events and changing economic trends such as globalization? Is it an inherent outcome of free market capitalism? 
  • What is inevitable and what can be changed?
    Is the problem income inequality, poverty – or both? 
  • What measures/indicators do we use and are they measuring what we think they are? 
  • Can public policy narrow the inequality gap? What are the best levers? 
  • Can one country act effectively or must there be coordinated action? 
  • Do Canadians care about income inequality or is it, as some have argued, an academic preoccupation?
