This workshop is part of the Institute for New Economic Thinking's project 'Rising inequality as a structural cause of the financial and economic crisis' which started in 2013 and is organised by the Political Economy Research Group. The project investigated how rising inequality, in interaction with financial deregulation, has contributed to the macroeconomic imbalances that erupted in the financial and Euro crisis.
The aim is to present the major findings of the project and to explore questions like what effects has increasing inequality had on consumption expenditures? What is the evidence that increasing income inequality led to an increase in consumption via ‘keeping up with the Joneses'-effects? How strong are wealth effects in consumption? How does the housing market affect financial (in)stability?
Booking is essential to attend this event.
