The Growth of Inequality and Reviving Social Mobility

Julian Le Grand
Sat 14 November 2015,

Inequality has dominated economic and political debate following the publication of Thomas Piketty’s book Capital in the Twenty-First Century. To what extent has social mobility declined in the advanced economies? Have we really returned to the hierarchical society of the 1930s? Why does social mobility matter? And can anything be done to revive it?

With Jo Blanden (University of Surrey), François Bourguignon (Paris School of Economics), Frances Coppola (former Banker and now commentator), Julian Le Grand (LSE) and Sarah Smith (University of Bristol).
