Wage suppression - not monopoly power - is fueling corporate profits and the growing gap between rich and poor.

Only a power and resource shift from capital to labor can reverse the entrenched trends of inequality.

New School Economics Professor Lance Taylor thinks most economists are missing the big picture.

In conversation with INET’s Lynn Parramore, New School Economics Professor Lance Taylor breaks down what’s wrong with the current debate on inequality and what to do about it.

Alternet and the Huffington Post published an interview by Lynn Parramore with SCEPA economist and New School Economics Professor Emeritus Lance Taylor.

New School Economist Lance Taylor released a symposium of literature on Thomas Piketty’s Capital in the Twenty-First Century in conjunction with the INET-sponsored research project on Economic Sustainability, Distribution and Stability.

Lance Taylor critiques Thomas Piketty's prediction of ever-increasing shares of national income going to the owners of capital.

Lance Taylor, SCEPA Faculty Fellow and Emeritus Professor of Economics at The New School for Social Research, will join the keynote panel for the annual conference hosted by the Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET) and the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI).

The conference will be in Toronto, Canada, from April 10-12. The event will highlight INET and CIGI's work to promote "new economic thinking" by identifying pervasive flaws in existing economic paradigms, promoting innovative interdisciplinary research, creating a strong global community for young scholars, and pushing the economics discipline to meaningfully address challenges of the 21st century.

Taylor will join the panel discussion, "Innovation and Inequality: Cause or Cure," to discuss his work with Professor Duncan Foley on an INET grant investigating the long-term consequences of economic growth, including the effects on climate change, the shift toward a service-centered economy, and the potential for financial and fiscal instability.
