Session 10: Global Income Dynamics

August 30-31, 2019 | Landau Economics Bldg, 579 Serra Mall, Room 134, Stanford

The goal of the conference is to bring together economists working on income inequality and income dynamics with administrative data from different countries. The main interest is in comparative analyses: Why is inequality rising in some countries and flat in others? Is income volatility or income risk rising as much as inequality? What about wage volatility? What are the trends in intergenerational mobility and the transmission of inequality across generations? Do we see similar trends in other countries? What is the importance of firm effects in the evolution of wages across different countries? Are changes in institutional features responsible for some of the differential trends? Teams from several countries will discuss common challenges, share and exchange ideas. The organizers’ ultimate goal is to edit a special issue of a peer-reviewed academic journal containing the different country-specific contributions.

Organizers: Fatih Guvenen (University of Minnesota), Luigi Pistaferri (Stanford) and Gianluca Violante (Princeton University)
Additional Sponsors: Washington Center for Equitable Growth and the Minnesota Economics Big Data Institute
