About the IWG
The Inequality Working Group is part of the Young Scholar's Initiative at the Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET). Our group brings together both graduate and undergraduate students interested in researching topics at the intersection of inequality and economics.
The IWG helps connect several local student groups and invidual students from across the globe by supporting and organizing events such as reading groups, seminars, online webinars, workshops, lectures, and conferences.
