Creating Conditions for Economic Mobility, featuring Professor Raj Chetty

February 27, 2018

Presented in Partnership with The San Diego Workforce Partnership and the Education Development Center, Renowned Stanford University economist Raj Chetty, Ph.D, shared his research that centers on some of the core issues affecting American society–opportunity, equality, access, education, and government policy through the powerful lens of economics. His current research reveals the obstacles to income mobility due to the systemic "leakage" of skills and talent that go unfulfilled when opportunities are not universally available to the citizenry.

A popular TEDx speaker and "Freakonomics Radio" podcast guest, Professor Chetty is a recipient of a MacArthur "Genius" Fellowship and received the John Bates Clark medal as best American economist under age 40.
