Professor Monique Borgerhoff Mulder awarded NSF Grant

National Science Foundation Grant awarded to Koster, Mulder, et al, for $880,000. Project titled: The Effect of Social Networks on Inequality: A Longitudinal Cross-Cultural Investigation

This interdisciplinary research project will examine how people's connections within social networks affect whether they gain or lose wealth over time. The project will test hypotheses that advantageous positions in community-wide social networks allow some households to aggregate wealth more quickly than their peers, and it will explore mechanisms for these emerging disparities.
