Yale University’s Program in Ethics, Politics and Economics is pleased to announce Branko Milanovic, Presidential Professor at the Graduate Center, City University of New York, who delivered this year’s Robert H. Litowitz Lecture in Ethics and Public Policy. The talk discussed the most recent evolution in global inequality, the new 2011 PPP numbers and focused on the political implications of the important changes that are taking place in global distribution of income. In particular, it focused on the rise of the middle class in Asia, income stagnation of the rich countries’ middle classes, and the emergence of global plutocracy.
Branko Milanovic is Presidential Professor at the Graduate Center City University of New York and Senior Fellow at Luxembourg Income Study; was lead economist in World Bank Research Department for almost 20 years and senior associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Washington.
Professor Milanovic’s main area of work is income inequality, in individual countries and globally, as well as historically, among pre-industrial societies.
His new book Global Inequality: a New Approach for the Age of Globalization deals with economic and political issues of globalization, including the redefinition of the "Kuznets cycles," and is to be published in April 2016.
