The Presidential Address
‘Tackling Trends in Inequality - an international perspective’

Professor Anton Muscatelli
Principal and Vice-Chancellor, University of Glasgow

Professor Hector MacQueen
Chair of Trustees, DHI

Professor Anton Muscatelli is not only president of the David Hume Institute and Principal of the University of Glasgow, but a distinguished economist with an international reputation. His theme will be the topical debate on inequality - giving the national and international context, with recent challenging books by Joseph Stiglitz and Thomas Piketty and other important academic contributions. He argues that if we are serious about tackling inequality we may need to do more than tinker with existing structures. We need to design our economic and political system to place fairness and equality at its heart.
