Inequality in America: how much is there and does it matter?

Wednesday, October 20th, 2010

Media outlets often claim that the difference between the haves and the have-nots in America is growing. We are, so the story has it, more unequal today than at any time since the Gilded Age of the late 1800’s. Is this depiction of the economic state of America accurate? And supposing it is, why does, or should, it matter? On Wednesday, October 20, 2010 at noon in Kent Library’s Sadie’s Place, Dr. Hamner Hill will examine the reality of income and wealth in equality in America, and the redistributive impact of Federal Tax policies. The social consequences of inequality will then be examined, with an eye toward understanding why we should care about equality. The presentation is open to all, and refreshments will be served.
