Cal Day: The Economics of Inequality

Three O-Lab professors, Rucker Johnson, Danny Yagan, and Supreet Kaur will discuss their research. Topics include the synergistic effects of pre-K and K-12 spending on children's long-run adult attainment, the interaction between specific colleges and upward mobility, and exploring how integrating ideas from psychology into economics can help us better understand why it is difficult to escape poverty.
