The ever-growing gap

Without change, African-American and Latino families won't match white wealth for centuries
Tax reform Taxation Economics Social inequality Socio-economic disadvantage Wealth Weather United States of America

This report examines the growing racial wealth divide for Black and Latino households and the ways that accelerating concentrations of wealth at the top compound and exacerbate this divide. The authors look at trends in wealth accumulation from 1983 to 2013, as well as projections of what the next thirty years might bring. They also consider the impact public policy has had in contributing to the racial wealth divide and how new policies can close this gap.
