We're happy to have conversations about eliminating poverty, but why are we so reluctant to talk about eradicating extreme wealth? Poverty is commonly regarded as an indication of a struggling society, and a tiny number of people controlling a disproportionately large amount of wealth should be seen similarly. Political philosopher Ingrid Robeyns, author of Limitarianism: The Case Against Extreme Wealth, joins Adam to explore how imposing limits on personal wealth accumulation can benefit society, democracy, and surprisingly even improve the lives of the wealthy.
