A global pandemic and the events of January 6 have exposed longstanding fissures in American society and the economy. Among the chasms elucidated are in the realms of health, occupations, income and wealth, and exposure to violence. Among the questions this talk will raise and address are: How did we get here? Can economic history shed light on the current situation? Based on history, are there policy solutions that would be relevant?

Lisa Cook is Professor of Economics and International Relations at Michigan State University, a contributor to Planet Money, and a member of the Biden-Harris transition team.

Sponsored by Perry endowment in Economics.
