Where is it?
Access to opportunity is seen by many as the solution to the increasing gap in annual income and compensations. A graphic, from page 25 of a presentation by the Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors, shows the growing pace of productivity (which implies growing consumption levels to absorb that productivity) and labor income provided (wages and compensation) to reward that productivity. For researchers at the Economic Policy Institute this growing “gap” between “real output and real compensation” is considered a major reason for the growing levels of economic inequality among Americans. The NDN Conversation Kit asks groups to consider this specific question.
