About the Talk
For several years, Oxfam has made headlines around the world with its pronouncements that global economic inequality is out of control.
This year, Oxfam found that the Covid-19 pandemic had supercharged the trend, leading to the 10 richest men in the world doubling their wealth since the beginning of the pandemic, whilst Covid has pushed an extra 160 million people into poverty. This may feel unfair, but for a charity that wants to end poverty, why does it matter that some people are so rich? There is no fixed pie of wealth, so surely there is room for the super-rich to get richer and still have success stories at the bottom?
This lecture from Oxfam’s head of policy and advocacy will outline why the billionaire boom is not something to celebrate, but is a symptom of an increasingly broken economics that it is making it harder to overcome poverty. It will talk about what needs to be done to reverse this trend, and discuss the role of campaigning, communications, evidence and advocacy in persuading the richest that they can’t have it all.

Over the past few years we have found that students from Warwick’s Economics Department have highly valued the opportunity to meet with employers and former students of the Department to explore the range of economics related careers.
For the 2021-22 academic year, we will be hosting a new series of webinars covering a range of topics. We hope that you take this opportunity to learn about further studies at Warwick, the skills that employers value in economics graduates and find out more about how to apply for the positions that they offer in their companies.
Please note that these events are for current students only. We will send you MS Teams joining details via email.
Wednesday 16 February Time: 2:00 - 3:00pm (UK Time)
