About This Event


The Washington Center for Equitable Growth hosted Jacob Robbins, Ph.D. candidate in economics at Brown University and Junior Fellow at Equitable Growth, for a seminar exploring a number of important macroeconomic trends in the United States over the past forty years. Among these trends: the rise of monopoly power and business concentration, the large increase in asset prices, the decrease in labor’s share of national income, the decline in the interest rate, and the decline in investment.

This event was be the latest installment of our monthly academic seminar series, which aims to elevate important new research on issues related to whether and how economic inequality impacts economic growth. It was be hosted at our offices in Washington, DC.
