Reasons to be Cheerful with Ed Miliband and Geoff Lloyd

FROM PHILANTHROPY TO JUSTICE: what the wealthy can contribute to society

Listen on

Episode notes

Hello! This week we’re revisiting a topic we’ve examined before: the role of the ultra-wealthy in our society. The Patriotic Millionaires movement recently lobbied in Davos for governments around the world to tax them more. We talk to Gemma McGough from Patriotic Millionaires about why it’s important for the rich to speak up, to Stephanie Brobbey about how wealthy people can become ‘good ancestors’, and to Derek Bardowell about taking funders and philanthropists on an educational journey to see the light about systemic change.

Plus: Ed admits the real reason he likes cycling to work and Geoff’s personalised number plate secret is finally outed.
