Susan McDaniel Article Featured on Broadbent Institute Blog

Why we should care about inequality has been well documented by the Broadbent Institute‚Äôs Equality Project report, and by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives report, Why Inequality Matters (2007).  In this paper, we hope to add another dimension or two to the ways inequality matters in Canada by reference to new research. 

A basic maxim is that life courses of individuals are shaped by the intersection of their own biographies with historical moments. To understand this, in earlier work, major cohorts of the 20th century were analysed (McDaniel,  2001; 2004) to see what socio-economic historical contexts were in place at crucial ages of transition for each cohort, such as when they moved into adulthood and presumably a job and/or family.
