Farid Kahhat, Carlos Paredes Lanatta and Natalia Sobrevilla in conversation with Gonzalo Banda

Imagine Latin America. The cost of inequality: Lessons and warnings from Latin America for the world

Arequipa 2022, 

Inequality in Latin America has been a constant throughout history: gaps in income distribution; inequalities in access to goods and services because of differences of origin, or working or social condition; or growing economic divergences between strata, sectors or classes. All these have caused crises in the region and created great social discontent, as well as the rise of populism. The sociologist and journalist Farid Kahhat, author of El eterno retorno; the economist Carlos Paredes Lanatta, who has written Resilientes pero no indolentes. Reflexiones sobre la crisis peruana; and the academic Natalia Sobrevilla, author of Independencia, will talk to the political analyst Gonzalo Banda.
