The Challenge of Economic Inequality to Recovery and Wellbeing




This year’s TASC-FEPS conference, that took place the 20th of June, brought together a dynamic audience including economists, academics, policy makers, public representatives, social justice advocates and activists to discuss ‘the challenge of economic inequality to recovery and wellbeing’.

With Thomas Piketty, fresh from the success of his best-selling book Capital in the Twenty-First Century, as keynote speaker, the conference drew an enthusiastic crowd of over 650 people to discuss and debate economic inequality, including policy proposals for more equitable alternatives to current systems and structures in Ireland and Europe.
