Many societies are based on the idea of a social contract: we are told that if we work hard, if we follow the rules, we will be rewarded. But then there’s the rule breakers. Those who make use of tax havens and reap profits without paying anything back to society. Not only does this increase injustice and corruption, it also undermines social cohesion. With his thunderous speech to the world’s richest at Davos 2019, historian Rutger Bregman was heard around the world. And the voices of all those fighting on the frontlines of social unrest are asking: what happens if we break the social contract that the rich have already broken?
