The Impact of Inequality on Transatlantic Economic Growth

Chatham House, London

US and the Americas Programme, US Geoeconomic Trends and Challenges


Martin Wolf, Associate Editor and Chief Economics Commentator, Financial Times


Recent years have seen a growing economic disparity in developed countries between the richest and the poorest. This divide threatens the growth of economies on both sides of the Atlantic. Drawing on his considerable expertise, Martin Wolf will assess the causes and ramifications of inequality in the United States, Europe and beyond. 

This event is part of the US and Americas Programme series on US and European Perspectives on Common Economic Challenges. Conducted with the support of the Bank of New York Mellon, this series examines some of the principal global challenges that we face today and potentially differing perspectives from across Europe and the US.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
