The Center for Urban Research and Education (CURE) and the Digital Studies Center (DSC) will continue its film series, “Exploring Metropolitan and Urban Issues,” on Friday, November 21st, with a screening and discussion of the documentary Park Avenue: Money, Power, and the American Dream. In the film, Academy Award-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney presents his take on the gap between rich and poor Americans in Park Avenue: Money, Power and the American Dream. Gibney contends that America’s richest citizens have “rigged the fame in their favor,” and created unprecedented inequality in the United States.
Dr. Paul Jargowsky, Professor of Public Policy and Administration and Director of CURE, and Sheheryar Banuri, economist with the Development Research Group (Macroeconomics and Growth Team), and director of the Behavioral Science Lab at the World Bank, will lead the discussion after the film.
This event will begin at 12 p.m. in the Armitage Hall Faculty Lounge. This event is free and open to the public. Lunch will be provided.
