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 books in progress are How Big Should Our Government Be? and The Good Society.
