We will examine the liberal and conservative critiques of this contemporary issue, as well as inequality’s impact on politics and society. Suggested solutions proposed by experts will also be discussed. A list of suggested readings will be provided. The class will utilize lecture, PowerPoint presentations and discussions to examine the issue of inequality.
