Putting Global Income Inequality into Context

How does where someone is born affect how much money they'll earn over a lifetime? What does income inequality indicate about a country's society and basic economic health?

Branko Milanovic tackles these questions as a lead economist in the World Bank's research department, where he works on the topics of income inequality and globalization.

OnĀ  Monday, March 10, Milanovic visits Drake Universit to discuss his most recent book "The Haves and the Have-Nots: A Brief and Idiosyncratic History of Global Inequality."
