Video conversation between a presidential candidate of the ruling party and a world-famous scholar.

The topic was ‘fairness’.

Democratic Party candidate Lee Jae-myung said that meritocracy contributed to the development of the market economy, but the side effects are increasing as competition intensifies and the growth rate slows.

[이재명/더불어민주당 대선 후보 : 성장의 정체는 결국 기회의 부족을 초래하고, 청년 세대들은 작은 기회를 놓고 많은 사람이 경쟁을 하니까 경쟁에서의 탈락이라고 하는 게 결국은 생존의 문제가 되어버린 것이죠.]

He emphasized that the role of politics is to allocate resources so that practical fairness is possible.

Harvard University professor Michael Sandel said that he felt that Korean youth had a great thirst for justice, and suggested political participation of various members of society as a solution.

The Democratic Party holds a general meeting of the House of Representatives regarding the suspension of capital gains tax for multi-family owners proposed by Lee.

However, they are conscious of the opposition in the passport, such as the Blue House, and are not going to make a conclusion right away.

This candidate also went into a breather.

[이재명/더불어민주당 대선 후보 : 실제 시행되는 건 다음 정부이기 때문에 (서로 동의가 안 되면) 선거 끝난 후에 얼마든지 할 수 있는 일이라는 생각도 듭니다.]

In the midst of this, the Democratic Party raised suspicions based on court decisions, etc. that the wife of People’s Strength candidate Yoon Seok-yeol owned the Songpa apartment in Seoul and the land in Yangpyeong, Gyeonggi under a borrowed name.

The People’s Power responded, saying, “In the case of apartments, property owners have exercised their property rights, and the land was a family transaction for the purpose of managing the property.”
