30 January 2018: Investment Opportunities and Economic Outcomes: Who Benefits from College and the Stock Market?

Urvi Neelakantan
Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, U.S.A.

Organised by:
Brookings India

Two investments stand out for their power to improve economic outcomes: higher education and stocks. In the absence public funding, though, both are seen as the preserve of the wealthy. As a result, higher education in particular is, in many countries, heavily subsidized with the explicit aim of promoting equality of opportunity. An important point, however, is that differences in learning ability, preparedness, and wealth are likely to affect individuals’ capacity to take advantage of investment opportunities and improve their economic well-being. This seminar will examine and present the effect of access to college and the stock market on individual earnings, wealth, and mobility. Does the power of college to increase well-being exceed that of stocks, as large subsidies to the former suggest?
