New York Fed to Publish Second Blog Series on Economic Inequality

February 24, 2020

On Wednesday, March 4, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s Liberty Street Economics blog will release a four-part series examining several facets of inequality related to the labor market, including heterogeneity based on race, education and credit access.

Additionally, the New York Fed will host a webinar for members of the press on the new blog series on March 4 at 12 PM EST. The webinar will feature a brief overview of the series’ top findings and will include an opportunity for questions after the presentation. Ahead of the series release, Liberty Street Economics will also publish a blog post on March 3 that introduces the new series and briefly summarizes the key takeaways.

The new series follows an earlier collection of blog posts published in October 2019, which examined inequality in wages, income growth, student debt, college cost subsidies, health, and home price expectations.

The latest series will feature the following posts:

“Women Have Been Hit Hard by the Loss of Routine Jobs, Too” investigates the differing effects of technological change and globalization on labor market trends among men and women.

“Is the Tide Lifting All Boats? A Closer Look at the Earnings Growth Experiences of U.S. Workers” examines differences in wage growth since the Great Recession by race, education and initial earnings.

“Searching for Higher Job Satisfaction” takes a closer look at the key drivers motivating job seekers and job-to-job mobility, and looks at differences by gender and other characteristics.

“How Does Credit Access Affect Job-Search Outcomes and Sorting?” looks at the effects of credit access on job-seeking behavior, particularly among displaced workers.

Members of the press who would like to sign up for the webinar should contact Desmond Lee at to RSVP.
