The New Inequality

SOC 401 A: Special Topics

In the United States, inequality has reached levels unseen since prior to the Great Depression. This course will serve as a primer on recent trends in economic inequality. We will examine the factors that account for the decades-long increase in economic disparities, paying particular attention to cultural trends, political developments, and the role of technological change. We will also compare recent movements in inequality and macroeconomic performance in the U.S. with other advanced industrialized nations.
