The Racial Wealth Gap, 1865-2019

with Prof. Dr. Moritz Schularick Institute for Macroeconomics and Econometrics Universität Bonn

Tuesday July 6, 2021 6:00 7:30 pm

Almost sixty years after the accomplishments of the civil rights movement, racial gaps in income and wealth in the US remain enormous There is widespread recognition that despite a decline in overt labor market discrimination and gains in educational opportunities racial gaps persist and have even grown larger by some measures In 2019 the wealth of a typical black household was only about 10 of that of a white household As Professor Schularick will show in his lecture, new research traces the evolution and driving forces of the racial wealth gap all the way back to slavery.
