Panel discussion


  • Is the redistribution of newly created wealth a reflexion of a “natural” division of labour or of 
  • a “cultural” and historically determined power balance between stakeholders? 
  • A history of redistribution theory
  • 19th century economists claimed that private property upsets free competition. Can a balance be struck? 
  • The payment of interest implies the concentration of wealth
  • Basic income guarantee. Is it feasible?
  • A world without work?
