Coming Out of the Recession With a More Equitable Economy

12:30 p.m. | Thursday, November 19, 2020

At the beginning of 2020, the United States was a prime case study on economic inequality. According to the Pew Research Center, the country has the highest rate of income inequality among all of the G7 nations, and the wealth gap between our richest and poorest families has more than doubled over the last three decades. With an income gap worse than all but five states, California fares no better than the rest of the country. Now, in the midst of a pandemic-induced recession, these inequalities are only being exacerbated. It doesn't have to be this way as the right government policies could help address both wealth and income inequality. Join us for a discussion of the big, bold policy tools that should be used to shape a more fair economy as we climb out of this recession.
