Growing Apart: Income Inequality in America

September 18, 2014
Neera Tanden, President of the Center for American Progress, discussed growing income inequality in the United States, arguing that “what’s really driving income inequality is not just the top and bottom, but the squeezes on the middle class.” Tanden presented data on the growing financial challenges facing middle-class families and policy recommendations from the Center for American Progress’s report, “The Middle Class Squeeze.” She also answered audience questions and spoke with students and faculty at a reception following her talk.
