Centro Studi Luca D'Agliano is organizing the online lecture “Inequality and the (mis)use of Talent” hold by Oriana Bandiera, Sir Anthony Atkinson Chair in Economics, LSE. The event will take place on 27th November 2020, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Putting available talent to its best use is key for the welfare of individuals and of the society to which they belong. Unequal access to opportunity in education and labour markets tampers with the allocation of talent leading to more inequality, poverty traps and lower welfare for all. This lecture reviews recent evidence on the misallocation of talent by economic class and gender in different settings, highlighting how temporary shocks -such as the current pandemic- can have permanent consequences.
