All Things Being Equal

“Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it.”

Lately, it seems like a critical mass of people in our society is attempting to replace truth with power, forgetting that all other societies that have ever done this have failed miserably.

One of the worst features of modern society, we are told, is wealth inequality. But, what is the historical truth about wealth inequality?

Drawing inspiration from Walter Scheidel’s book, The Great Leveler: Violence and the History of Inequality, in this episode we explore the history of wealth inequality and discuss how the cure has tended to be far worse than the disease.

I hope you love the episode.
