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 books are How Big Should Our Government Be? and Social Democratic America. My current book in progress is The Good Society.
