The Demographics of Wealth: How Age, Education and Race Separate Thrivers from Strugglers in Today's Economy

Registration for this event is now closed.

The Center for Household Financial Stability at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis has published a three-part series of essays, "The Demographics of Wealth: How Age, Education and Race Separate Thrivers from Strugglers in Today's Economy." The essays examine how a family's race or ethnicity, educational attainment and age are related to its ability to thrive financially.

During this breakfast event, William Emmons, the essays' co-author, will present detailed information about their findings, followed by a panel discussion with local community stakeholders. Participants will hear how these three factors—age, level of education, and race or ethnicity—are increasingly determining whether someone is among the "thrivers" (the quarter of the population who are accumulating wealth) or among the "strugglers" (the other three-quarters of the population who are not).

This event is free; however, registration is required by Wednesday, Sept. 16, as space is limited. Breakfast will be provided.
