What are inequalities? Why do they matter? What could be done about them? Accompany Alice on her exploratory tour to better understand the shape, origins, and consequences of the complex phenomenon of inequality.
Want to know more? We invite you to join the conversation! Write to us with questions about inequality, or if you would like Alice to further explore some aspects you are particularly interested in.
In this episode, Alice meets Luis Monroy-Gómez-Franco, who is a Ph.D. student in economics at CUNY Graduate Center, lecturer at The City College of New York, and external associate researcher at the Centro de Estudios Espinosa Yglesias (CEEY).
The topic of the conversation is social mobility, and how it functions as a link between big contemporary issues like poverty, inequalities, and the concentration of opportunities and how life trajectories are possible/likely in a given society, Mexico in our case, based on these.
