Interview: Matt Battaglioli on ‘The Consequences of Equality’


I used a different recorder for this particular podcast. For some reason, the recorder has me and Matt out of sync and gives the impression that I have a habit of interrupting him at the end of his answers, which is slightly annoying to listen to. Matt will confirm that I did not in fact do this. For my part, I’ll return to my old Skype recorder. 

The Consequences of Equality is a critical analysis of egalitarianism. Economics, political theory, ethical theory, and sociology are all used to tackle some of the most controversial questions of the day: “What is the nature of equality?” “Are people truly equal, and in what ways?” “What would it mean if they are not?” and, most importantly, “What occurs when a society fails to accept the inevitability of inequality?” —Dr. Richard Lynn

  1. Great interview. I think I used to know the author in question when MSN was still a thing. Definitely shall be picking up his book.
