September 2008: Economic Inequality working group meeting

At an inaugural meeting of the Economic Inequality working group, scholars identify a number of domains for research, each of which offers a promising setting for promoting cross-disciplinary collaboration and highlighting important research questions. While the scholars agree that inequality has been reasonably well-measured, they also note that research on the causes of increased inequality has produced little consensus and that there is markedly little work on the consequences of and remedies for inequality. Meeting participants include Martin Gilens (Princeton University, Politics), Peter Leight (Assitant Attorney General, Massachusetts), Frank Levy (MIT, Economics), David Moss (Harvard Business School), Bruce Western (Harvard University, Government).
