The Pitchforks Are Coming

Why the 1% should be afraid.

Ordinary citizens are starting to realise that their dwindling share of our common wealth is no accident, but the inevitable result of the current system. As life becomes more precarious, has the time come when the ‘discontented majority’ will flex their muscles and seize, by whatever means, a fairer share of the economic and social pie? Or will the world’s wealthiest 1% step back from the precipice by realising that inequality is as much of a problem for them as it is for everyone else?

She is a sociologist and social policy scholar whose work identifies and challenges inequalities arising from gender, age and social disadvantage.
