Trends of increasing economic inequality are similar around the world, but its effects have varied widely across countries, so an important question is what causes such differences in outcomes. 

This one day conference brings together leading experts on causes and consequences of economic inequality in the U.S. and elsewhere and discusses how inequality and its consequences can be addressed by smarter policies. We will address five main topics, each of them introduced by one or more leading experts: 

  • National and International trends in inequality
  • Effects on health and health inequality
  • Effects on Psychological Well-being
  • The role of work now and in the future, including automation, new employment patterns, and the gig economy
  • The role of education and how to prepare future generations for a changing world

We hope you can join us!

Sponsored by the Center for Social and Economic Research
