Economists Suresh Naidu, Dani Rodrik and Gabriel Zucman survey the policy recommendations of members of the Economics for Inclusive Prosperity (EfIP) group, a coalition of academics seeking a fresh vision for the dismal science. Their study finds that, by rejecting long-held beliefs and focusing on equality, economists can offer more suitable policy recommendations. This thought-provoking report concludes that to achieve “inclusive prosperity,” economics must embrace ideas that correct the power imbalances present in markets and society.
