Contrasting living conditions

Studying the impacts of institutions and policies on economic opportunity, poverty, and inequality. 


Economic mobility is moving in the wrong direction, yet policymakers do not know how to effectively reverse the trend. Through investments in research, we seek to provide our nation's leaders with feasible policy solutions. To date, our research support has led to over 20 published and working papers covering a range of issues including economic development, evictions, racial equity, family economic success, mental health, and government programs.
