As the saying goes, “A penny saved is a penny earned.” But does that penny saved translate into greater upward economic mobility?
Pew’s Economic Mobility Project generates original research and conducts public communications and policymaker outreach to spark an informed and nonpartisan discussion about the health and status of the American Dream.
In partnership with the New America Foundation, the project investigated the connection between savings and mobility, both within an individual’s lifetime and across generations. The results suggest that savings is a powerful indicator of economic mobility, especially for those at the bottom of the income ladder.
Join Erin Currier, Senior Associate of the Economic Mobility Project (initiative of the Pew Charitable Trusts) on Wed, August 18th for this exciting webinar.
