The Stone Centre is bringing together a stellar line up from across the disciplines to spend a day working on this question:

What can we learn from the evolution of wealth inequality since prehistory, about the processes sustaining extraordinary wealth inequality today, and policies to secure a more just distribution in the future?

We'll be joined by:

Sam Bowles, Professor, Santa Fe Institute on Origins of enduring wealth inequality.

Amy Bogaard, Professor of European Archaeology, University of Oxford on Ancient technology and inequality. A global perspective.

Simon Johnson, Ronald A. Kurtz (1954) Professor of Entrepreneurship and Professor of Global Economics and Management, MIT on Technology and inequality over the last millennium

Walter Scheidel, Dickason Professor in the Humanities, and Professor of Classics and History, Stanford University on Politics, crises and the great equalizer

Suresh Naidu, Professor of International and Public Affairs and Jack Wang and Echo Ren Professor of Economics, Columbia University

David Wengrow, Professor of Comparative Archaeology, UCL

Photos and videos of the event will be taken on the day.


British Academy, 10-11 Carlton House Terrace, SW1Y 5AH London
