Oxfam’s anti-rich research will “set dangerous precedent”

Len Shackleton quoted by the Daily Mail

Responding to Oxfam’s latest study on climate change and the rich, IEA Editorial and Research Fellow Professor Len Shackleton argued the report was based on vague assertions about damage to the planet and set a dangerous precedent for the state to interfere in peoples private activities.

Len argued:  “This is just another piece of anti-rich ‘research’ from a charity which would be better engaged sticking to its original and laudable objectives in relieving poverty, rather than engaging in stunts like this.”
