Chetty will discuss his current research on “equality of opportunity,” which examines the connections between poverty and place and looks at how to promote economic opportunity for low-income families and their children. He will discuss the critical role that neighborhood conditions play in individuals’ economic, health, and educational outcomes as well as how the right public policies can help broaden opportunity and foster upward mobility.
Chetty is Professor of Economics at Stanford University and Co-Director of the Public Economics group at the National Bureau of Economic Research. He is a recipient of a MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship, and his work has been widely cited in the media and used in Congressional testimony.
