A new book by the University of Chicago’s Casey Mulligan presents a fresh and controversial explanation for the listless economic recovery following the Great Recession. In “The Redistribution Recession: How Labor Market Distortions Contracted the Economy,” Mulligan argues that expansions of the U.S. safety net program deepened and lengthened the downturn by reducing incentives to work.

At this AEI event, Mulligan will present the findings of his book, followed by comments from Robert Moffitt of Johns Hopkins University and an audience question-and-answer session. AEI’s Alan Viard will moderate.
