    CONVERSATION - Conversations are panel discussions that provide an in-depth, up-to-the-minute look at a single topic. Featuring three to four thought leaders and an expert moderator, Conversations consist of a 60-minute discussion, followed by 15 minutes of audience q-and-a.

    Inequality in our country is said to be greater than ever. The rich are getting richer and it’s nearly impossible to rise from the bottom. But what if instead of fighting inequality, we actually celebrated it? This Chicago Ideas debate will look at inequality through the lens of the American Dream posing the question: Is equal fair? Author of the book Equal is Unfair Yaron Brook faces off with James Galbraith, author of Inequality: What Everyone Needs to Know.

    What to expect: This riveting and timely debate will dig into the origins and economics of equality, its social impact and long-term outcomes. Will equality prevail? That’s up to you! We’ll be polling the audience before and after the debate to determine which speaker’s argument holds more sway.
