CEPR Senior Economist Heather Boushey was invited to participate in a Wall Street Journal Online Feature debating the ramifications of persistent inequality in the US with Russell Roberts of George Mason University. Heather argues "Over the past 30 years, we have seen inequality rise along all three dimensions -- wages, incomes and wealth -- and it shows no signs of slowing. As a result, income and wealth is becoming increasingly concentrated in the hands of a relatively small, elite group."
