Who’s Behind US Downward-Mobility?

February 25, 2017 ·  · Topic: Economic Mobility  · Relevance: not sure

President Trump blames Mexicans, Chinese and other foreigners for the plight of downwardly mobile Americans but the real culprits are his corporatist pals who grab the lion’s share of the wealth from U.S. global dominance, says JP Sottile.

Donald Trump kicked-off his presidency with the bold accusation that the “wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed across the entire world.” It was a logical follow-up to a campaign rooted in selling voters on a grand global conspiracy of wily Chinese, cunning Mexicans, lollygagging NATO welfare queens and nefarious “ global elites ” who’ve […]

7 ideas for curing toxic inequality

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

ILLUSTRATION BY RYAN HUDDLE/GLOBE STAFF; AP IMAGES Thomas M. Shapiro’s book, “Toxic Inequality,” is available from Basic Books. Nearly two decades ago, I set out to learn how wealth — not just income — shapes family choices and how assets affect economic mobility. My colleagues and I interviewed 187 families from Boston, Los Angeles, and St. Louis who represented different walks of life, with hopes, dreams, and frustrations emblematic of those shared by millions of Americans trying to get ahead.

When we checked back in with them to see how things had gone, again and again we saw that personal […]

Study finds colleges may not be the greatest equalizer

February 23, 2017 ·  · Topic: Economic Mobility  · Relevance: not sure

GRAPHIC BY GABRIELLE DIPIETRO/ DAILY FREE PRESS STAFF Getting a college degree may no longer be a source of economic mobility, according to a new study conducted by two City University of New York scholars. The study shows that after graduation, students from low-income families may be less successful than students from higher-income families, even if they go to the same school.

Research by Dirk Witteveen, a doctoral candidate in sociology at the Graduate Center of CUNY and Paul Attewell, a professor in sociology also at the Graduate Center, tied the burdens of college loans and fees to the economic […]

Women engineers 2017

Business Insider In honor of National Engineer’s week (February 19-25), we bring you our annual shout-out to the most powerful women engineers in tech.

Yes, the tech industry is doing a well-documented terrible job in attracting women into engineering . And once they enter this male-dominated world, some women are subject to some appalling sexism and/or sexual harassment.

But that only tells part of the story. There are also women who are leading important tech teams at important companies. And there are women who are building cool cutting-edge technologies at startups.In other words, there are women having fabulous careers at engineers, […]

1 Impulse # 2015/05 Dr. Thieß Petersen Program Shaping Sustainable Economies Phone: The Impact of Income Inequality on Economic Growth Increases in income inequality have both growth-promoting effects (stronger performance incentives, as well as incentives to invest in one s own human capital, to take risks, and to make investments) and growth-dampening effects (demotivating incentives, social tensions and political unrest, declines in demand as a brake on growth). While increases in income inequality in the 1950s and the 1960s still led to growth-promoting effects, current studies increasingly identify growth-dampening effects. Particularly in highly developed economies such as […]

Former leader of the Dutch Labour party PvdA, Diederik Samsom (R) and new leader Lodewijk Asscher | Koen Van Weel/AFP via Getty Images GRONINGEN, Netherlands — Set aside, for the moment, the surging far-right leader Geert Wilders or the incumbent, liberal Mark Rutte fighting to hold on to the prime ministership.

The other big story of the Dutch election next month is the collapse of the mainstream left. It goes a long way to explain why this country’s politics are in such turmoil.

Heading into the March 15 poll, low-income voters are souring on Labor, currently the second-largest party in parliament, […]

A bronze sword, a gold-decorated spearhead, well-preserved sheath fittings, and fur skins – all thought to date back to around 3,000 years – are some of the remarkable finds uncovered at a dig currently underway in the UK.

The items have been uncovered near the town of Carnoustie, in the council area of Angus on the east coast of Scotland.Experts from GUARD […]

Leaders of private colleges and universities in New York are gearing up to oppose Gov. Andrew M.
