Applications open for Poverty/Prosperity workshop in Brazil


In August 2017, a group of Brazilian and British scholars will hold a 4-day workshop in Belo Horizonte, Brazil to examine the role of wealth creation in exacerbating domestic and international poverty and the role of social welfare systems in refuting divisions. Our investigation will engage both welfare reform (in the UK and Brazil) and economic development (globally). The coordinators of the workshop hypothesise that disparities in income and in consumption are not by-products but building blocks of the contemporary economic order. To be blunt, for a few people to get filthy rich, many more must get filthy poor.
