“Finance, Inequality and Long-run Growth” is the title of the fourth annual conference of the Julis-Rabinowitz Center for Public Policy and Finance. Three facts stand out in recent economic history. First, there has been a secular rise in inequality in the U.S. over the last four decades. Second, finance has expanded significantly resulting in high level of leverage in various segments of the economy. Third, there has been a continual decline in long term real interest rate, combined with an apparent slowdown in long-run GDP growth more recently. Is there a common underlying economic force that is driving all these patterns? What are the implications for the U.S. and global economic outlook? How should policy respond in the face of these long-term challenges? The conference will bring together top academics and policy makers to address these questions
