Issue #217 - July 2010

This is Issue of OPPORTUNITY examines the "Consequences of Inequality, 1967 to 2007".
We examine the social welfare and pathologies associated with growing income inequality in the United States. For more than 40 years incomes have been growing more unequal, or concentrated among fewer people. Because higher education is increasingly the gatekeeper to the middle and upper incomes available in the United States, this issue explores what this means.
