Recording and slides:
As part of the Economics of Discrimination lecture series held in October-November 2020, Director of Policy Outreach at Opportunity Insights at Harvard University, David Williams shared his insight into Economic Opportunity and Race and whether the U.S. is truly ‘the land of opportunity’. Specifically, he asked:
- Are chances of success really independent of parental income?
- What are the patterns of intergenerational mobility?
- What explains inequality in opportunity? Is it geography, education, income or race? Do policies that can improve economic opportunities exist?
