03: Intergenerational Justice and Economic Outcomes

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
english language

The intergenerational transmission of human capital seems to be crucial for providing equality of opportunity. Intergenerational correlations of education, income and wealth between parents and their children indicate a range of different results between OECD countries. What are the different kinds of transmission and what implications do these have for macro-economic development? How should economic policy react to these challenges?
