Conference of the UNC Center on Poverty, Work and Opportunity and the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy
November 4 & 5, 2007
George Watts Hill Alumni Center, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
The keynote address will be delivered by Dr. Robert Kuttner, co-founding editor of The American Prospect, co-founder of the Economic Policy Institute and Senior Distinguished Fellow, Demos.
While wealth inequality is not new, reports of the rapid polarization of income and assets in the United States and abroad are dramatic and remarkable. To explore the ramifications of this trend, the Center on Poverty, Work and Opportunity and the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy are co-sponsoring a conference that will engage distinguished academics, policymakers, nonprofit organizations and other stakeholders in a dialogue about wealth inequality in the United States within a global context.
Please mark your calendars and join us, and our renowned speakers and panelists, as we examine domestic and global wealth inequality patterns and their implications.
