TEDx Barcelona


TEDxBarcelonaSalon 13.01.14

At our TEDxBarcelonaSalon events we foster networking, dialog and the discussion among all members of TEDxBarcelona. In order to achieve this we meet once a month and listen to an interesting talk. After watching the talk we discuss about the presented subject. In order to make this event effective we limit the number of attendees.

Our January-TEDxBarcelonaSalon event will took place on Monday, 13th of January at 19:15 at the library Excellence (C/ Balmes 191).

The rise of the new global super-rich

Technology is advancing in leaps and bounds — and so is economic inequality, says writer Chrystia Freeland. In an impassioned talk, she charts the rise of a new class of plutocrats (those who are extremely powerful because they are extremely wealthy), and suggests that globalization and new technology are actually fueling, rather than closing, the global income gap. Freeland lays out three problems with plutocracy … and one glimmer of hope. Chrystia Freeland

We watched the video of her talk altogether (in english with spanish subtitles). Afterwards, we discussed about the current situation and look at possible aleternatives available today already.
We finished the event with networking and a glass of cava.
