First watch Richard Wilkinson’s TED Talk (16 minutes), ” How economic inequality harms societies” https://www.ted.com/talks/richard_wilkinson
Then, answer the following questions in a paragraph or so each:
1. Why does Wilkinson believe that inequality (larger gaps between the wealthiest and the poorest members of society) is more harmful than poverty alone?
2. Do you think that Rawls or Nozick is more likely to agree with Wilkinson? Why?
3. What do you think about Wilkinson’s argument? Do you think there are any problems with his argument? Do you think the US needs to make any changes? Why or why not?
