Community Conversation: Income Inequality

At no time since the Great Depression has there been a larger disparity between the rich and the poor in the United States. The growth in both income and wealth inequality is creating discontent communities across the United States, spurring activism and political movements, and driving calls for new policies. In this session we will explore wealth and income inequality, its impacts, and policy proposals. How can we live up to our most ambitious national aspirations and provide opportunity for Americans? Moderator: David Steirman, San Francisco; Speaker: Noam Neusner, 30 Point Strategies, Professor Diane Schanzenbach
