Or is focusing on wealth and income inequality a fool's errand because the best way to help the poor is to grow the pie rather than meddle with how it's divided?

Trade After Brexit: Will freer markets enrich us?

As the UK leaves the EU, what is the future of free trade? Who gains the most from free trade, and who stands to lose out?

Speakers:

The future of Britain’s trading relationships post-Brexit is still up in the air. Business are at odds with each other, some making the case for close regulatory alignment with the European Union, others calling for Britain to diverge from EU regulations and carve out its own place on the global stage. Will more freedom and trade improve the well-being of all parties? Who gains most from free trade, and who stands to lose out?
