Intergenerational Transfers, Wealth and Gender in Britain
Tuesday 25 May 2021
12:30pm to 1:30pm BST
Speakers: Professor Brian Nolan (Professor of Social Policy, Department of Social Policy and Intervention, University of Oxford) and Dr Juan Palomino (Research Officer, Department of Social Policy and Intervention, University of Oxford)
Chair: Professor Francisco Ferreira (Amartya Sen Professor of Inequality Studies and LSE III Director)
This talk will investigate the impact of intergenerational wealth transfers on wealth levels and inequality, exploiting rich household survey data. It will analyse patterns of intergenerational transfer receipt by gender, and assesses the extent to which differences in the scale and nature of these receipts contribute to the gender wealth gap.
