In their book The Lessons of History, Will and Ariel Durant write:

“In progressive societies the concentration of wealth may reach a point where the strength of number in the many poor rivals the strength of ability in the few rich; then the unstable equilibrium generates a critical situation, which history has diversely met by legislation redistributing wealth or by revolution distributing poverty.”

Tom Ballou reviews the book and evaluates its significance. Thanks to Ed Dodson of the HGS Philadelphia for the use of his material. Attendees will receive online access to a narrated book review and slide show for further study.
