General description

Inequality is a crucial issue in world affairs. It is both a political and economic issue, and the problem is addressed very differently around the world, with strong policy differences perceived between the United States and the Nordic countries. This class will examine the issue of inequality from a range of perspectives. Subjects include: economic causes of inequality, political causes of inequality, economic and political repercussions from inequality, the impact of inequality on demand for public goods and income redistribution, labor policy and inequality, health and inequality and welfare state policy and inequality.
