From inventing thumb drives to companies such as Razer to Grab, Singapore’s commitment to free markets has produced some of the world’s most accomplished and innovative business leaders. While free markets have blessed us with economic prosperity, some remain anxious about the moral implications such as cultivating an excessively competitive, selfish and materialistic society that only best serves those who’ve made it in life or the top 1%.
In this talk, Yaron Brook shall shed light on how capitalism can gear even the most self-interested of individuals towards values such as compassion and integrity without compromising on one’s financial interests.[Equal is Unfair Dialogue Series]
In 2018, the issue of income inequality struck a chord with many Singaporeans. Channel NewsAsia has reported that class divided Singaporeans more than race or religion. In Oxfam International’s inequality index, Singapore is ranked in the bottom 10th percentile. In light of these developments, much doubt has been cast the moral underpinnings of our economic success.
To cultivate a healthy conversation about income inequality, The Philosophy of Life is eager to invite Yaron Brook to Singapore for a 2-part dialogue series on 30 May and 1 June 2019.
Yaron Brook is an award-winning Israeli-American author and his book, Equal is Unfair, is an Amazon bestseller. He is also the chairman of the prestigious Ayn Rand Institute and has his own show on YouTube, The Yaron Brook Show, to connect with his fans worldwide.
Yaron Brook aims to re-frame our perspectives on income inequality with uncomfortable but vital questions such as:
What is the role of government and businesses in relation to inequality?
Can inequality ever be fair and just in a society?
Stay informed! For a ticket price of $10, you can enjoy access to BOTH talks in series.
Details on Part II: How should we confront income inequality here:
Inequality is not a subject we can afford to neglect to discuss. Apart from setting the tone of our economic policies, it defines our stance towards education, entrepreneurship, etc. and how we relate to others across the SES (socio-economic strata) spectrum.
The series is a fantastic opportunity for you to challenge your perspectives and take home with you some novel insights on politics and economics from Yaron Brook.
