How Increasing Income Inequality Is Dampening U.S. Economic Growth, And Possible Ways To Change The Tide

April 26, 2017 ·  · Topic: Economic Mobility  · Relevance: not sure


View Glossary Terms Economic Research:

The topic of income inequality and its effects has been the subject of countless analysis stretching back generations and crossing geopolitical boundaries. Despite the tendency to speak about this issue in moral terms, the central questions are economic ones: Would the U.S. economy be better off with a narrower income gap? And, if an unequal distribution of income hinders growth, which solutions could do more harm than good, and which could make the economic pie bigger for all?

Given the decades–indeed, centuries–of debate on this subject, it comes as no surprise that the answers are […]

Documenting decline in U.S. economic mobility

April 26, 2017 ·  · Topic: Economic Mobility  · Relevance: not sure


Economists and other social scientists have long studied intergenerational income mobility, but consistent data linking adult incomes of children and their parents at similar ages over many generations have been unavailable, which thwarted attempts to study long-term trends. Chetty et al .’s study in this issue of Science ( 1 ) is therefore a tour de force for producing historically comparable estimates of absolute income mobility—the fraction of individuals in a birth cohort who earn, at age 30, more than their parents did at roughly the same age—over the post–World War II period. Their striking conclusion is that there […]

The world isn’t as flat as we thought: Mobility is key to closing economic divide

April 24, 2017 ·  · Topic: Economic Mobility  · Relevance: bad

Long-term trends will change the global economy, putting unique strains on both large cities and outlying areas. PwC has identified five megatrends actively shaping our world: rapid urbanization, technological breakthroughs, shifts in global economic power, demographic and social change, and climate change. These trends combine to create a geographic and economic divide—booming cities that produce up to 90 percent of US GDP growth but grapple with spiraling housing prices, strained infrastructure, and outlying areas at risk of stagnation and brain-drain.

Mobility—the ease with which people, goods, and ideas can move from one location to another—is a powerful lever that all […]

Fecteau: The Stupidity of Trumped-up Tax Cuts

April 24, 2017 ·  · Topic: Economic Mobility  · Relevance: not sure

Donald Trump President Donald Trump is set to introduce a massive tax cut soon that will disproportionately favor the affluent – as he hints. That’s right; at a time when income inequality is equivalent to that of the Great Depression, and income mobility is stagnant; the Trump administration will shower the already well-off with even more cash. The “massive” tax cut Trump is proposing will not do anything for our economy, and only further concentrate wealth into the hands of the exceedingly wealthy.

Trump’s tax-cut plan is nothing new. Trump is championing a debunked theory embraced by President Ronald Reagan […]
