We are delighted to present to you an invitation to our upcoming IEA Book Club Webinar with Dr Rainer Zitelmann, who will be talking about his latest book “The Rich in Public Opinion”. This will take place on Tuesday 14th July at 18:30 BST

In “The Rich in Public Opinion: What We Think When We Think about Wealth”, historian and sociologist Rainer Zitelmann examines attitudes about wealth and the wealthy in four industrialized Western countries: Germany, the United States, France, and Great Britain. This book aims to examine how we think about a minority that, while undeniably powerful, can still be the subject of negative stereotypes, prejudice, and scapegoating― often with dire effects for us all.

Alongside surveying the literature about stereotypes and prejudices, whilst observing the portrayal of the rich in media and film, Rainer reports on never-before-seen data commissioned by the polling firm Ipsos MORI and from the Allensbach Institute, which conducted identical surveys of residents of four countries regarding various aspects of their attitudes toward wealth
