      Economic Inequality with Dr. Jon Haveman

      Economic inequality, whether measured by income or wealth, is at levels not seen in nearly 100 years.
      Dr. Jon Haveman will explore trends in inequality, the sources of growing inequality, explore the potential implications, and discuss policies that might address issues of growing inequality.
      There are a variety of policies that can be pursued that would reduce inequality. The appropriate policy is in direct response to the particular causes. Though there is no single cause, there are a variety that are not on the public’s radar. International trade and immigration, for instance, play a relatively small role.

      Jon Haveman, Ph.D is Executive Director of the National Economic Education Delegation (NEED), a San Rafael nonprofit. He is also CEO of EconSpeak.org. He is a man on a mission to make economic policy literacy relevant and real.
