What Is at Stake for Economic Justice in 2016? Inequality in Global, National, and Local Perspective
October 17, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 5:15 pm
Growing income inequality and the stagnation of middle-class incomes over recent decades have been prominent themes in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. What are the causes, and what can be done?
In this talk, William Sundstrom will start by taking a step back from the U.S. setting to provide some global perspective on income inequality and growth. In contrast with the case of the United States and many other developed countries, the “global middle” has actually experienced substantial income growth since the 1980s. Might both trends have a common cause? And if so, is it realistic to view economic justice as a common—rather than a competing—good?
