Applied Micro Workshop – Emir Kamenica, “Coming apart? Lives of the rich and the poor over time”

— filed under:

Marianne Bertrand and Emir Kamenica: “Coming apart? Lives of the rich and the poor over time” We analyze temporal trends in cultural distance between the rich and the poor in the United States. Our measure of cultural distance is the ability to infer whether an individual is in the top or bottom household income quartile based on his or her (i) media consumption, (ii) consumer behavior, (iii) time use, and (iv) social attitudes. We find that income-based differences in media consumption, consumer behavior, and time use have been constant over time. In contrast, the ability to correctly infer top-or-bottom income quartile from social attitudes has increased from 70% in 1972 to 80% today.
