About the Webinar

If we care about social mobility, we are told, we should care about income inequality. While true, this statement omits the crucial role of economic freedom. If anything, the role of economic freedom is more important than inequality in securing upward mobility for the poorest in society.

This is a previously recorded webinar. The recording includes a 30-minute presentation followed by a 15-minute question and answer period by LIVE attendees. If you are interested in attending one of our upcoming webinars, look under the Upcoming Events tab.
