Description

Our Chairman Mr. Nick Sallnow-Smith on behalf of The Lion Rock Institute invites you to join our dinner event:
Lion Rock Dinner Event
Equal is Unfair
Dr. Yaron Brook
Executive Chairman
Ayn Rand Institute
We are told everyday that equality is the ideal goal of the modern society, and that the rich become richer at the expense of the poor. The proposed solution, according to this account, is more government intervention, taxing of the rich, and the imposition of more and more regulation on business to “protect” the poor  (minimum or living wage, standardized working hours etc.).
But is equality “fair”? Is it really an appropriate goal for society?
Dr. Yaron Brook, author of the book Equal Is Unfair: America's Misguided Fight Against Income Inequality, argues that if we look at our society today, many people have the ambition to start their own businesses. By trying to break free from the status quo and create something new, they demonstrate the instinct to generate wealth, create their own success at the same time adding value for society. The growing burden of regulation on business damages the potential of these initiatives to create growth and thereby worsens the conditions of the poor, rather than the claimed aim of protecting them.
Join us to take part in this important discussion led by Dr. Brook, at a juncture in Hong Kong when these issues are widely debated!
