ARC Scholar/GC Wealth Project

Yonatan Berman is a fellow at the London Mathematical Laboratory. He received his Ph.D. from Tel Aviv University and has been a Chateaubriand postdoctoral fellow at the Paris School of Economics. His work focuses on social mobility, wealth and income inequality, and their inter-relationship from both empirical and theoretical perspectives. He is particularly interested in understanding whether inequality leads to lower social mobility and vice versa, and whether there can be “enough” social mobility to “care less” about increasing income and wealth inequality. His research interests include microeconomic theory, with or without applications to inequality and social mobility, with emphasis on the role of time: how introducing dynamics to income and wealth affects the way we should analyze and explain economic behavior.
