High Pay Centre Director Luke Hildyard’s new book “Enough: Why it’s Time to Abolish the Super Rich” is being published on 20 March 2024 by Pluto Press. We will be hosting a launch event at the Wesley Hotel in Euston on the evening of April 18th. (Drinks and light snacks served)

The book argues that a major re-balancing of the distribution of income and wealth should be an urgent, pragmatic and necessary priority for policymakers, in the UK and globally.

A major and transformative programme to tax the super-rich - and where possible stop them capturing such vast and unwarranted fortunes in the first place - would significantly raise living standards for the overwhelming majority of people. It’s completely reasonable and realistic to think this can be done (indeed it’s wishful thinking to believe we can meaningfully improve quality of life for the majority without it).

At this event, Luke will set out the arguments in the book, before an expert panel debate the policy, messaging and political challenges associated with addressing extreme concentrations of income and wealth.
