Inequality: A Barrier to Economic Growth
22 January 2020
12:00—13:00

Globalization and technological development have played major roles in increasing prosperity over the last few decades. However, they have also led to significant inequality in the distribution of economic benefits. After the global financial crisis, both developed and emerging economies expressed growing concern over increasing inequality. More and more often, economists find themselves talking about inequality as, not just as a consequence, but a possible cause of slowed global economic growth. Today, rifts are growing in the distribution of profits and wealth among various subsections of the population and in access to basic social goods such as healthcare, education, and housing. Inequality also influences the efficacy of ‘social elevators’. What are ways to increase the inclusivity of economic growth, such as national and international taxation systems, social and regional policies, labour market regulation, and digitalization?
