Work by Bailey and Dynarski cited in NYT piece on income inequality

a PSC In The News reference, 2014

"Income Inequality and the Ills Behind It" - New York Times. 07/29/2014.

This post looks at the complexity of rising economic inequality in the U.S. -- including causes, proposed solutions, and failed attempts at remediation.
