Professor of Sociology and Yankelovich Chair in Social Thought
University of California-San Diego
I study the causes and consequences of living standards, poverty, inequality, mobility, employment, economic growth, social policy, taxes, public opinion, and politics in the United States and other affluent countries. My most recent book is Social Democratic America. My current book in progress is The Good Society. If you’re looking for Consider the Evidence posts, they’re here (by date) and here (by topic).
