【讲座简介】

Despite significantly different economic systems, the United States, Russia and China all show marked similarities in the structure of the distribution of wealth and income. In all three, economic inequality is rising as a result of the interaction of economic and political forces that affect low-, middle-, and upper income strata differently. Because high and rising inequality corrodes social cohesion and weakens governance, policy makers in the three countries have sought to identify policy solutions that would limit inequality without inhibiting economic growth.  Some in China have proposed the strategy “control the two ends, cultivate the middle” to deal with inequality. What would such a policy consist of in practice?
