Participation in 14.999

The class 14.999 Topics in Inequality taught by Daren Acemoglu, David Autor, and Ivan Werning, was offered for the first time in Spring 2015, meeting 1 session / week for 1.5 hours / session. There will be limited overlap between 14.662 and 14.999. Please plan to attend (at least) the first three lectures of 14.999 which will be taught by Autor. These three lectures will dovetail with 14.662 and should be considered part of the 14.662 sequence.
