Does the government have a role in solving disparities in wealth? This question was debated intently at the University of Pittsburgh. Pitt Libertarians debated the Pitt Progressives on this topic. A large crowd of 120 students and members of the Pittsburgh community attended. These attendees witnessed both sides present compelling arguments. The libertarians argued that government has a history of creating wealth inequality through banking laws, the drug wars, and racist policies. The Progressives argued that a new government led by new people could solve wealth inequality through a UBI and universal healthcare. The audience walked away with a clearer understanding of the issue and were exposed to libertarian ideas.
