The purpose of this conference was to create an exchange of ideas and promote possible collaboration among a diverse group of scholars of the Measurement and Interpretation of Inequality network (MIE) (now MIP) on the general topic of intergenerational mobility. The goal of the MIE network is to understand and interpret inequality in all of its manifestations; intergenerational inequality is a key dimension of the group’s research objective. Bhashker Mazumder of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, and the co-leaders of the MIE Working Group, Steven Durlauf of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Scott Duke Kominers of the Becker Friedman Institute of Research in Economics at the University of Chicago organized presentations and discussions
