Costs of Inequality

University Professor of Economics, Business and International Affairs Joseph E. Stiglitz pursues research on the determinants and costs of inequality, and policies that would reduce it. Professor Stiglitz has been developing a broad “equality-growth-efficiency” agenda that reduces the scope for rent-seeking and other market distortions that contribute to inequality, and increases equality of opportunity by pursuing a comprehensive rewriting of the rules of the American economy.
