Professor Chetty is widely viewed as one of the most influential young economists in the United States and is a recipient of a MacArthur Foundation grant and the American Economic Association’s John Bates Clark Medal. Much of his recent research concerns equality of opportunity. The entire Brown community, especially undergraduates regardless of concentration, are encouraged to attend.
