Policy Picnic – May 20, 2015
Please join us for our monthly Policy Picnic led by Cascade board chair and economist Dr. Bill Conerly
Topic: Economic Inequality: Causes, Consequences, and Policy Implications
Description: Economic inequality has been the hottest topic in public policy in 2015. Please join us as Cascade board chair Dr. Bill Conerly discusses reasons for changes in inequality and possible policy responses to this controversial issue.
Although Dr. Conerly is best known for his work applying economics to business challenges, he studied income distribution under the top professor in the field (Martin Bronfenbrenner of Duke University) and has written on inequality for Forbes.com.
This free, informal event promises to be a lively, interactive discussion about one of the most debated topics in policy–and politics–today. RSVP soon, as space is limited.
