Economic inequality has been soaring in the United States since the 1970s, making it as unequal as it was during the Gilded Age, and more unequal than any of the world's other wealthy nations today that are considered democracies. Can representative governance survive, in any meaningful way, amid such disparity between citizens? How does economic inequality interact with long-standing inequalities of race, ethnicity, and gender? The course addresses these questions by investigating how rising inequality influences and is affected by: the processes through which citizens seek to influence the political process; the operation of governing institutions and processes; and public policy.
