Book Launch: The Great Escape by Angus Deaton



We were honored to host Angus Deaton last week for a lecture on his brand new book The Great Escape: Health, Wealth, and the Origins of Inequality. A standing-only crowd piled in to hear Deaton, Professor of International Affairs and  Economics at Princeton, discuss humanity’s “Great Escape” from poverty as well as the troubling health and income inequalities that still persist.
