Speaker bio: Gary Stevenson left his trading career behind, convinced that solving inequality was the only way to repair the world economy. He has since studied for an MPhil at Oxford, worked with economic think-tanks and founded a YouTube channel, GarysEconomics, teaching people about real-world economics. He regularly appears on television and radio and has written for the Guardian and OpenDemocracy, among others. Gary's first book, The Trading Game, will be published by Allen Lane on 5th March.
The lecture is named in memory of Alistair Berkley, a student at Robinson College who was killed in the Lockerbie Air Disaster. Alistair’s parents established it to honour their son’s commitment to social justice, focusing in particular on issues of equality. Please note: this event will be filmed.
