This conference was in memory of Gary Becker and explores various measures of inequality and pose the question whether or not it is increasing. In exploring this question and examining policy implications, presenters drew, where possible, on research on human capital and intergenerational mobility. Presenters addressed the key policy question of what to do, with particular attention during the discussion to those at the bottom of the income distribution and the overall effects on economic growth.  For more information, see the web story covering the event.
