‘Does vast wealth create a moral obligation to give back?’ It’s A Question Of Balance 8-9 PM Saturday 11th April
This Saturday 11th April 8-9 PM on It’s A Question Of Balance with Ruth Copland we consider ‘Does vast wealth create a moral obligation to give back?’ Some billionaires such as Bill and Melinda Gates, Warren Buffet and John Caudwell feel that it does. They are all signatories to the Giving Pledge which commits the pledgee to give more than half of their wealth to philanthropy or charitable causes either during their lifetime or in their will. Plenty of other billionaires are keeping their wealth to themselves. Do you think the world’s billionaires owe anything to the societies in which they made their fortune? Or do you think it’s their money, and they shouldn’t feel guilty about having it or that they have to give some away?
What do you think? Ruth Copland gets the views of people on the street for our Out and About feature. Join us on Saturday 8-9 PM! For more info on the show and to hear past shows visit www.itsaquestionofbalance.com
