    Some Microfoundations of the Great Gatsby Curve

    295 Lafayette Street, Conference Room, 4156

    The Great Gatsby Curve refers to the observation that within the OECD, countries with higher levels of cross-section inequality also exhibit lower rates of intergenerational mobility. This talk will provide a theoretical model to explain this relationship. I will argue that changes in the level of cross-section inequality can alter levels of neighborhood segregation. Greater segregation, in turn lowers mobility, because of local public finance of education and via social interactions. The model will also illustrate how intergenerational mobility is qualitatively different in growing versus stationary economies.
