Description

WATCH A VIDEO OF THIS EVENT

As wealth becomes more and more concentrated at the top in our country, we need to understand how wealth works—who has it, how did they get it, and how do they keep it? In his book A Century of Wealth in America, Edward N. Wolff (professor of economics at NYU) provides extensive evidence and astute analysis of wealth trends and of the interplay between wealth and income. Drawing on decades of research, he gives this year’s Stone Lecture on Wealth Inequality, then joins in a conversation with Eduardo Porter, Economic Scene columnist for The New York Times.
 
Presented with the Stone Center on Socio-Economic Inequality.
