Do American Universities Promote Income Inequality?


Affluent Americans support more conservative economic policies than the non-affluent and government responds disproportionately to these views. Yet little is known about the emergence of these consequential views which are partly traceable to socialization that occurs on predominately affluent college campuses, especially those with norms of financial gain and especially among socially embedded students.

Tali Mendelberg explored how ‘the affluent campus effect’ illustrates how college socialization partly explains why affluent Americans support economically conservative policies.
