Public discussions and policy debates often mention rising income inequality as one of the greatest challenges. This talk will consider how recent trends in economic inequality shape our local, state, and national communities today. We will discuss how inequalities in income and wealth shape the prospects for upward mobility for future generations. And we will examine whether improving education – long seen as the most forceful way to strengthen social and economic opportunity – can still reduce inequality and its consequences.
