Economic Inequality: Causes, Consequences and Responses
We live in an age of vast economic inequality — the top 20 percent of U.S. households owns more than 84 percent of the country’s wealth, according to Scientific American. On Friday, December 4, Georgetown University Law Center will host a full-day conference that aims to identify and understand the factors that contribute to this disparity on both a domestic and global level. Georgetown Law Dean William Treanor and Professors Mitt Regan and Peter Edelman open the conference, which includes panels on racial disadvantage, trade policy and more. Columbia University Economics Professor Dan O’Flaherty delivers a luncheon address on the economics of race in the United States, and Georgetown Law Professor Sheryll Cashin makes closing remarks.
