Income and Wealth Inequality: Evidence and Policy Implications

The CCPA-BC is proud to present, in partnership with UBC's Vancouver School of Economics, the 2014 Gideon Rosenbluth Memorial Lecture. Economist Emmanuel Saez will present "Income and Wealth Inequality: Evidence and Policy Implications".

The lecture will discuss income and wealth inequality—including the role of technology and globalization, education, government regulations and tax policy—based on evidence gathered by a collective group of researchers in the World Top Incomes Database. The database, which Saez developed jointly with Thomas Piketty, measures income patterns across more than twenty countries. Saez will summarize the key empirical findings, and highlight Canadian data on inequity and the top 1%.
