________________________________________________________
While there is growing interest on understanding the causes and consequences of rising wage and income inequality, much less is known about consumption and wealth inequality. This is surprising, as consumption and wealth are believed to be better indicators of long-term well-being than income or wages. In his public lecture, Professor Pistaferri will disc...uss what we know about consumption and wealth inequality, using examples from various countries and outlining where future research should focus on.
Luigi Pistaferri is a Professor of Economics at Stanford University. He graduated summa cum Laude from Istituto Universitario Navale in Naples (Italy) in 1993, completed a Master in Economics at Bocconi University in Milan (Italy) in 1995, and a PhD in Economics at University College London in 1999. Professor Pistaferri’s research is mainly on household choices: consumption, saving, portfolio allocation, labor supply, and time use. His papers have appeared in the American Economic Review, Econometrica, the Review of Economic Studies, the Quarterly Journal of Economics, the Journal of Political Economy, among others. He is the Ralph Landau Senior Fellow at the Stanford Institute for Economic and Policy Research, and a Fellow of the Econometric Society.
