The Bevelled Playing Field

Equality of opportunity unites everyone from New Labour to Michael Howard's Tories. But what does it really mean? Is a level playing field possible in real life? And how to measure the costs of attempting it? Do equality before the law and universal human rights automatically imply equality of opportunity in other fields: education, work, politics, or love? If not, where does equality give way? And how far should equality of opportunity be a guiding principle of government policy?

Part of the "The ICA Economist Debate" series of talks.
