What Does Big Data Say About Social Mobility?
September 17, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
A defining feature of the American Dream is upward income mobility — the ideal that children have equal opportunities to succeed in life, regardless of the circumstances of their birth. Join The Policy Lab and John Friedman, Professor of Economics, International Affairs, and Public Policy at Brown University and Founding Co-Director of Opportunity Insights at Harvard University, to discuss his research using large administrative datasets to uncover where opportunity lacks in America, and what policymakers and civic leaders can do about it to revive the American Dream for future generations.
