The Joint Center’s Economic Policy Director Jessica Fulton participated in a discussion at New America’s convening on The Millennial Wealth Gap: Divergent Trajectories, Unsteady Ladders of Success, and Implications for Social Policy. During the event, Jessica sat on the “Implications for Social Policy” panel with Elisabeth Jacobs (Senior Director, Family Economic Security, Washington Center for Equitable Growth) and Liz Hipple (Senior Policy Advisor, Washington Center for Equitable Growth). The panel’s facilitators were Ray Boshara (Center for Household Financial Stability, St Louis Federal Reserve Bank) and Reid Cramer (The Millennials Initiative, New America).
This invitation-only convening’s goal was to conduct “a deep dive into the contemporary trends and challenges created by emerging wealth gaps among the diverse range of young adults in America today. Using a balance sheet and life-cycle perspective, the convening will focus on the historic pillars and processes that impact long-term economic outcomes.” Learn more here.
