Economic inequality is increasingly a top concern among both policy-makers and the public over the past decade. This course will examine how intergenerational mobility, or the lack thereof, potentially contributes to these concerns. Students in this course will learn about fundamental theories of distributive justice, learn how to evaluate different measures of mobility and persistence, and discuss the latest theories and empirical evidence on intergenerational mobility.
