We are happy to welcome economist Gabriel Zucman in our third #ZEWBookTalk, who will present his latest book “The Triumph of Injustice: How the Rich Dodge Taxes and How to Make Them Pay” written in collaboration with Emmanuel Saez. The two Berkeley-based economists revolutionised the study of inequality. They argue that declining top marginal tax rates are the primary driver behind current levels of income equality. Eschewing anecdotes and case studies, Zucman, who has also advised the likes of Bernie Sanders and Elisabeth Warren, offers a comprehensive view of America’s tax system, based on new statistics covering all taxes paid at all levels of government. Their conclusion? For the first time in over a century, billionaires now pay lower tax rates than their secretaries. With clarity and concision, they explain how America turned away from the most progressive tax system in history to embrace policies that only serve to compound the wealth of a few.
Following his presentation, @gabriel_zucman will engage in an exchange of views with ZEW President @AchimWambach.
This event takes place as part of the SEEK research programme.
