Lane Kenworthy’s New Article on Income Inequality

UCSD professor at the sociology department, Lane Kenworthy, has a new article out on contemporary sociology. The piece, titled “Why the Search in Income Inequality?” discusses the rise of the top 1 percent and poses the following questions:

What has caused the surge in top-end income inequality? Is it a product of changes in the economy? Or, as Paul Krugman’s The Conscience of a Liberal and Jacob Hacker and Paul Pierson’s Winner-Take-All Politics contend, have the key shifts been in America’s politics and policies?

The article is freely accessible on SAGE Journals.
