Abstract

Income inequality is an issue at the forefront of American politics. Rising inequality over the last half-century has resulted in corresponding increases in a variety of social problems. My research will analyze the causes of income inequality, the social effects, and propose policies which would reduce inequality. Due to the pecuniary nature of the underlying issue, the proposed policies will primarily be related to increasing the progressiveness of the tax system, while also offering more generous government services and benefits.
