Please join MDX Journalism Conversation Series for a discussion of how economic inequality is being reported and represented by the news media. Economic inequality itself is a concept that is evolving, as we have seen the rise of a new class of the working poor, and other implications of a decade of austerity policies.

As inequality is on the rise, and having a tremendous impact on the political landscape, these concerns have never been more pressing. The news media plays a central role in informing the public and shaping the debate - so how well has it done so far, and what could be done to improve coverage?

Join us with Joseph Stiglitz, Nobel Prize laureate, Vince Cable, Lib Dem leader 2017-19 and Ben Chu, BBC Newsnight's economics editor, to speak about these issues and more on December 5.

Everybody is welcome.
