There’s been a lot of talk about income inequality lately. Harvard Kennedy School professor Mary Jo Bane offers some hard facts and pointed observations. Do you agree with her? More importantly, how are you helping to preserve or restore the fabric of society? Share your ideas and experiences.

Once a week, 92nd Street Y’s Campaign for the American Conversation offers you insight and analysis from the best minds at the Harvard Kennedy School. HKS is collaborating with us on American Conversation Essentials – short videos that explain the issues at play during this campaign year. The videos are the building blocks for your own conversations with friends, colleagues and even people you’re not sure you agree with. Start with the information we offer here and then keep your mind open as you discuss the topics of the day.
