In this public lecture Carol Graham will explore the unequally shared American dream. Her study is distinct from other work on inequality because of the metrics that she uses. She uses traditional measures of income inequality as a point of departure and then use well-being data to highlight inequality in beliefs, hope, and aspirations. The high costs of being poor in the US, for example, are more evident in stress, insecurity, and hopelessness than in material deprivation.
