Analyzing the Regulatory Roots of Inequality

Dr. Steven K. Vogel and I will be looking at how rules shape market outcomes in a variety of fields. Specifically, we will be looking at the ways formal regulations and informal practices affect inequality in areas ranging from entrepreneurship to labor markets. Through a combination of economics, political science, and political economy literature and theory, we hope to use this information to better understand the ways governments can promote more equitable outcomes.

Message to Sponsor

Thank you so much for donating to this wonderful program! Because of your contribution, my professor and I were able to make serious progress on two papers that we were very passionate about. Both take a look at economic literature and policies in a light that is seriously under-discussed and thanks to you we were able to make serious progress.
