URPP Equality of Opportunity

Module Economic Change

The research module “Economic Change” studies how technological changes, globalization and other macroeconomics forces affect the economic outcomes and welfare of diverse groups in society. Thus, this module centers around issues of measurement and quantification of the inequality between “winners and losers” in times of economics change. It combines specific empirical work on Switzerland and other Western economies with broader theoretical and conceptual investigations.
