Podcast: Is it Worth it?


Why is social inequality steadily growing in Germany? What are the costs of perfect immunity? And how is it that the state is so active in economic policy? Many questions which are answered in an English-language podcast focusing on the Max Planck Society’s research.’s Research Quartet podcast addresses the topic of "value" in a conversation with three scientists from the Max Planck Society about their research: Tobias Lenz of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology in Plön, Leon Wansleben of the Max Planck Institute for the Studies of Societies in Cologne and Lisa Windsteiger of the Max Planck Institute for Tax Law and Public Finance in Munich.

Lisa Windsteiger explains why an increase in societal inequality does not automatically lead to an increased demand for redistribution.
