Dan Andrews ; Andrew Leigh
This paper investigates the relationship between inequality and intergenerational mobility, comparing fathers' estimated earnings with the earnings of their sons. The authors find that sons who grew up in countries that were more unequal in the 1970s were less likely to have experienced social mobility by the late-1990s.
