We discuss valuable lessons he learned from living and working around the world which he writes about in his book How To Fight Inequality and why that fight needs you.

If we on our side have every fact and every policy and the other side has all of the stories, the passion, the emotion, the excitement, then we’ll lose”

~Ben Phillips, author of How To Fight Inequality and why that fight needs you.

From where I’m sitting, this is the end of the line for Thatcherism and for shareholder capitalism, it’s made a tiny number of people, bankers and private equity people and mergers and acquisition specialists spectacularly rich in the past 40 years, but overall the development strategy has failed the vast majority of people in the United States and in Britain and in other countries that went down this route.”

~ John Christensen, Tax Justice Network
