In this latest podcast we talk with plolicy analyst at the inequality think tank, TASC, Dr Rob Sweeney. Rob has a PhD in economics from University of Leeds, which concentrated on financial markets and investors, banking, international macroeconomics, and housing and his current role focuses mainly on issues surrounding the Irish political economy and wealth distribution.
In this podcast we discuss the latest Tasc Report, edited by Rob, Cherishing All Equally 2019: Inequality in Europe and Ireland. This is the fourth in the Tasc series of annual reports on economic inequality. It provides updates on where Ireland stands on this issue, and we ask the critical question: is inequality increasing or decreasing? We also expand the issue to include the EU as well.
