The Economist Who Would Fix the American Dream
No one has done more to dispel the myth of social mobility than Raj Chetty. But he has a plan to make equality of opportunity a reality.
WCE has this comment.
I enjoyed this article on how economist Raj Chetty is using big data to identify areas of opportunity in the United States. I especially appreciate how his work is bipartisan and how he’s trying to keep it that way. While I don’t think we understand the laws of economics as well as we understand the laws of physics, I believe there are negative consequences to violating either, due to unintended consequences. Chetty wants us to improve society for the long-term in ways that obey the laws of economics.
