Aннотация:
Although themes of opportunity and prosperity dominate American culture, inequality has increased markedly over the past generation and the United States has a higher level of inequality than any other affluent country. This course explores inequality in the contemporary U.S. We will examine: (1) recent trends in incomes, income inequality, poverty, wealth, consumption, mobility, and access to basic material and social needs; (2) the ways in which inequality is patterned by class, race, and gender; (3) institutions aimed at reducing inequality and poverty, including the welfare state and labor market regulation. Throughout the course we will pay particular attention to changes over time and to similarities and differences between the United States and other affluent nations.
