Request for Proposals
The Washington Center for Equitable Growth seeks to deepen our understanding of whether and how inequality affects economic growth and stability. Our academic grants program is building a portfolio of cutting-edge scholarly research investigating the various channels through which economic inequality may (or may not) impact economic growth and stability, both directly and indirectly.
We are currently requesting proposals in four areas:
How, if at all, does economic inequality have an impact on macroeconomic growth and stability?
Human Capital and the Labor Market
How, if at all, does economic inequality affect the development of human capital, and to what extent do aggregate trends in human capital explain inequality dynamics?
How, if at all, does economic inequality impact the quantity and quality of innovation?
How, if at all, do levels and trends in economic inequality effect the quality of social, economic, and political institutions contributing to economic well-being and economic growth?
