About Opportunity and Mobility
We all sign up to these things as being desirable in a well-run economy. But what is meant by them? And are people in different countries really thinking about different things? A multi-country analysis of how people perceive equality of opportunity and income mobility that is currently underway should have important implications for the way governments think about these things in the future, especially in view of the economic situation over the last year.
