2020 Donald J. Sutherland Lecture: The Elusive Quest for Shared Prosperity

The public has been chronically disenchanted with the U.S. economy, and the pandemic has only heightened social unrest. What can we do to address these concerns? N. Gregory Mankiw will discuss the many difficult tradeoffs policymakers face as they search for answers.
