Income inequality in America has become an increasingly important issue, as evidenced by the Occupy Wall Street movement and the growing disparity from the local to the national level between the haves and the have-nots.
In October, two nationally prominent economists will discuss the question: Income inequality in America — is it a problem for public policy?
The speakers are:
- Robert H. Frank, professor of management and economics at Cornell University; Frank is also a New York Times columnist and author of "The Winner Take-All Society."
- Scott Winship, fellow in economic studies at The Brookings Institution
George Mason University political scientist Jack Goldstone will serve as moderator.
The event is 6 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 3, at George Mason University's Founders Hall, 3301 Fairfax Drive. A reception follows.
