Sponsored by the Public Policy Program at Roosevelt House
Where: Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute at Hunter College, 47-49 East 65 Street (between Park and Madison Aves.)
James Parrott, Deputy Director and Chief Economist of the Fiscal Policy Institute, will discuss Inequality and Poverty in New York City and what can be done at the local level in response to those problems. While there are deep, and often national, roots to those issues, Parrott will discuss how New York City can marshal budget, tax, and economic policies, and utilize its programmatic leadership, to address income polarization and poverty. Parrott’s talk will be informed by his 16 years with the Fiscal Policy Institute and prior positions working for the City of New York and the State Comptroller’s office.
RSVP to RHP3@hunter.cuny.edu, Lunch will be served.
