COPAS: What's Wrong With Inequality?

April 11, 2017 - 4:00p
Mershon Auditorium
Wexner Center for the Arts

Dr Amartya Sen received the Nobel Prize in Economics in 1998, and in 2012 he became the first non-American in history to be awarded the National Humanities Medal by President Barack Obama. Dr Sen will be discussing the value of inequality-aversion judged as a basic human concern and to what extent it might conflict with other human values, such as economic efficiency and freedom.
