The Crawford School of Public Policy presents a lecture by Carol Graham on Happiness for all? Unequal hopes and lives in pursuit of the American dream.

In this public lecture Carol Graham will explore the unequally shared American dream. Her study is distinct from other work on inequality because of the metrics that she uses. She uses traditional measures of income inequality as a point of departure and then use well-being data to highlight inequality in beliefs, hope, and aspirations.

Carol Graham is the Leo Pasvolsky Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution and College Park Professor at the School of Public Policy at the University of Maryland. She is also a Research Fellow at the Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA).

Date: Monday 24 July 2017
Time: 5.30pm–6.30pm
Venue: Barton Theatre, Level 1, JG Crawford Building 132, Lennox Crossing, ANU
