What are the root causes of economic inequality? How did it evolve since the golden sixties? Did it take new forms? What can and should we do about it? These are some of the key questions that we shall address during this half-day conference.
This conference will consist of two parts. In the first one, leading academics will present research focused on various aspects of income and wealth inequality. The second part (16:00-17:00 Brussels time; 10:00-11:00AM EST) will be a roundtable discussion on shared prosperity featuring Margrethe Vestager, André Sapir, and Gabriel Zucman.
Two members of the BE-PARADIS research team participate in the conference. Paula Gobbi is presenting in the first part on 'inheritance, Demographics, and Economic Development. Micael Castanheira moderates the second part.
