Senior Fellow – Brookings Institution, Co-Director – Center on Children and Families
When British born Richard V. Reeves moved to the United States, he was stunned at the realization that his new homeland had a more rigid class structure than the one he left behind, and especially at the very top. Reeves is a senior fellow in Economic Studies, Director of the Future of the Middle Class Initiative and co-director of the Center on Children and Families at the Brookings Institution. His research focuses on the middle class, inequality, social mobility, and family change and the important role education plays in both equalizing and preventing upward mobility in America. Reeves most recent publication for Brookings is his latest book Dream Hoarders: How the American Upper Middle Class Is Leaving Everyone Else in the Dust, Why That Is a Problem, and What to Do about It. Don’t miss the opportunity to hear from one of Politico magazine’s top 50 thinkers in the U.S.
