On October 26th, EPI will host a panel discussion on how to address the gender pay gap and achieve more broadly shared prosperity. Panelists will also discuss how to provide a better infrastructure to help workers balance work and family. Join us in DC or watch the livestream.
In a new book, The Color of Law, EPI’s Richard Rothstein debunks the myth of “de facto” segregation—the idea that our neighborhoods remain segregated because of income differences, private prejudices, and the desires of blacks and whites to live with same race neighbors. He documents how federal, state, and local governments, with racially explicit intent, segregated American cities from San Francisco to Boston. Rothstein’s book demonstrates that government’s purposeful creation of American ghettos created the framework for conflicts in places like Ferguson, Baltimore, Milwaukee, and Charlotte.
