November 28, 2016 marked the first installment of the Heller Social Policy Debate series, in which a panel of guest speakers consider current critical social policy issues. This inaugural debate considered the topic of income and wealth inequality, seeking causes and remedies with the question, "Is there too much market, or not enough?"

Debate participants included Robert Kuttner, visiting professor at the Heller School and co-editor of The American Prospect, Richard B. Freeman of Harvard University, Glenn C. Loury of Brown University and Aparna Mathur of the American Enterprise Institute. The debate was moderated by Brandeis University Provost Lisa Lynch, and hosted by the Heller School for Social Policy and Management.
