Wealth Inequality in America: What It Looks Like and Why It Happens

March 3, 2020, 7:00 PM

Free

The wealth gap between the haves and the have-nots is at an all-time high, and the disparity is even larger among marginalized sects of the population. In line with the Goldfarb Center’s theme this year, Associate Professor of Sociology Christel Kesler will examine the influence of various policies in the growing and shrinking of the wealth gap in the United States. In addition to the overarching issue of wealth inequality, this talk will zero in on wealth discrepancies based on race and gender.
