Connecting the Dots Between Poverty, Inequality, and Mobility
This event is part of Equitable Growth’s initiative to better understand the relationship between poverty, economic inequality, and the American Dream. Equality of opportunity endures as a foundational principle for the United States, but what do historically high levels of inequality mean for opportunity and mobility? This convening will gather some of the nation’s sharpest thinkers to hash out a framework for making sense of what we know—and what we need to know—in order to better understand the relationship between these two defining concepts. Our goal for this work over time is to grow the research base on the relationship between inequality and mobility in order to develop evidence-backed policy frameworks for decisionmakers who seek to promote multigenerational economic well-being.
