In the fall of 2007, when the U.S. economy first seemed in peril, I began answering reader queries here on the Business Desk. I still do so occasionally, but this page has expanded to include posts from eminent economists, "far-flung correspondents," and a variety of voices that have intriguing and/or useful things to say about economics, broadly defined. Please feel encouraged to respond to any and all of them.
Last Friday, Paul took to the social media sphere for an hour-long live Q&A session on a topic that's sparked quite a healthy debate on our pages: economic inequality. You can see it all here, but we've rounded up and ordered the two-dozen queries and responses below, along with some additional information and reporting.
