Economic and social inequality the focus of three new TCF fellows

The Century Foundation (TCF) will announce Monday that Stefanie A. DeLuca, Edward D. Kleinbard and Moshe Marvit have joined the think tank as fellows to take on national social and economic inequality concerns. 

“Our most pressing and important policy questions are those of social and economic inequality,” said Janice Nittoli, president of the foundation. “It’s essential to have experts such as Stefanie, Ed and Moshe doing the important research and writing on these problems so we can understand and solve them.”

According to TCF:

DeLuca teaches sociology at Johns Hopkins University. Her current research examines the sociology of education, urban sociology, neighborhoods and social inequality. Her research also involves sociological considerations of education and housing policy, including the determinants of educational attainment and the role of housing, neighborhood and social context on youth and family outcomes. She is the recipient of a William T. Grant Foundation Scholars award and received her PhD in human development and social policy from Northwestern University.

Kleinbard is a professor of law at the University of Southern California’s Gould School of Law. His work focuses on the taxation of capital income, international tax issues  and the political economy of taxation. Before joining USC Law, he served as chief of staff of the U.S. Congress’s nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation and was a partner in the New York office of Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP. He received his JD from Yale Law School, and his MA in history and BA in medieval and renaissance studies from Brown University.

Marvit practices law in Pittsburgh, and is the coauthor, with Century Foundation senior fellow Richard D. Kahlenberg, of “Why Labor Organizing Should be a Civil Right: Rebuilding a Middle-Class Democracy by Enhancing Worker Voice” (2012). He has worked at the National Labor Relations Board and was an editor at the Employee Rights and Employment Policy Journal. His current research focuses on labor organizations, excluded workers and employment and civil rights. He received a BA in philosophy at Penn State University, a MA in political science from the University of Chicago, a JD from Chicago-Kent College of Law and an MA in history from Carnegie Mellon University.
