    A new study indicates that the United States continues to lose ground when it comes to addressing inequality. According to the latest report from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey (ACS) released in September 2019, the gap between the richest and poorest U.S. households is now the largest it has been in the past fifty years. Despite a national economy with low rates of unemployment, more than ten years of consecutive growth in gross domestic product (GDP), and median household income at an all-time high ($61,937 for 2018), disparities in income along racial, generational, and geographic lines grew.

    Since 2015, the Academy has viewed inequality as the most pressing challenge facing the nation. We have been exploring how the nation’s social insurance infrastructure might respond to changing demographic and economic realities with this overarching focus on inequality. Later this month, we will be launching a new Study Panel on Economic Security, which intends to build on and bring together multiple strands of policy work over the past several years. (More on this below).

    Source: 2018 American Community Survey census.gov/acs

     

    The Academy, of course, is not alone in taking this view. The August 2019 statement of the Business Roundtable on “the purpose of a corporation” noted that “Americans deserve an economy that allows each person to succeed through hard work and creativity and to lead a life of meaning and dignity.” At a recent event held by the Concord Coalition, Economic Patriot Award recipient Mark Weinberger (my former colleague at EY) stated: “The degree of income inequality is unacceptable. We need to acknowledge it and deal with it. It’s a moral and economic imperative.”

    First, a quick backgrounder:

    How is income inequality measured?

    One major indicator of inequality, the Gini index, measures how far apart incomes are from each other. The index ranges from 0.0 to 1.0; a score of 0.0 indicates a population in which incomes are distributed perfectly evenly, while 1.0 means a population in which only one household receives all of the income.

    The Gini coefficient has been holding steady in the United States for the past several years, with the coefficient (before taxes and transfers) hovering between 0.508 and 0.505 from 2014 to 2017. (For reference, the corresponding 2017 figures in Canada and the UK were 0.438 and 0.506 respectively.) However, these numbers reflect a substantial increase in inequality relative to 2005, when the score was 0.486, and a very large increase since 1967, when the Census Bureau began studying income inequality. At that point, when President Johnson had just declared a War on Poverty, the Gini index for the U.S. was a much more modest (and equal) 0.397. For more information on the Gini coefficient in the U.S. and elsewhere, including after taxes and transfers, see here.

    Source: BETTMANN / CORBIS

    What accounts for this increase in income inequality?

    Academy Board of Directors Chair Bill Rodgers, Professor of Public Policy at Rutgers University and Chief Economist at Rutgers’ Heldrich Center, noted in an interview with NPR that the new ACS report “clearly illustrates the inability of the current economic expansion, the longest on record, to lessen inequality.” When asked why the rising economic tide has raised some boats more than others, Rodgers listed several factors, including the decline of organized labor, competition for jobs from abroad, and tax policies that favor businesses and higher-income families.

    Is income inequality the only issue to be concerned about?

    It should probably not be surprising that asset inequality has been growing along with income inequality. A recent research brief by the National Institute on Retirement Security (NIRS) found that financial asset inequality among Americans continues to increase and that it poses “a significant threat to retirement for working Americans.”

    The NIRS research brief put forth three policy recommendations to help improve retirement security for working Americans that speak both to the critical importance of our current Social Insurance infrastructure and the need to enhance it to meet emerging needs:

    • Strengthen and expand Social Security;
    • Support state efforts to establish state-facilitated retirement savings plans;
    • Promote and improve the federal Saver’s Credit to help build the retirement savings of low-income households.

    The Academy’s new Study Panel on Economic Security

    In response to a number of studies tracking the growth of inequality, including the recent ACS and NIRS reports, we are launching a new Academy Study Panel on Economic Security. In addition to looking at the extent of economic and wealth inequality in the U.S., the Study Panel’s scope of work includes examining gaps in the existing systems, beginning with the original social insurance programs which were established during the Great Depression to guard against employment uncertainty, inability to work, and an inadequate income in retirement. As a foundation of its work, the Panel will compare the three modalities of social insurance, social assistance, and assured income as interrelated instruments to address economic security and inequality.

    The work of this new Study Panel is so critical to our mission and our overarching strategic focus on inequality that it will be co-chaired by three of the Academy’s officers – Board Chair Bill Rodgers, Vice Chair Reneé Landers, and Treasurer Jason Fichtner. After deliberating over a twelve-to-fifteen month period, the Study Panel will issue its report in 2020 to commemorate the 85th anniversary of the 1935 report of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Committee on Economic Security.

    Source: ssa.gov

    Stay tuned for more details about the official launch of the Study Panel later this month. (In the meantime, learn more about inequality with resources available on the Academy’s website.)

    As always, we welcome your questions and comments about this and other Academy activities.

    The 22nd report in the series, Workers' Compensation: Benefits, Costs, and Coverage (2017 Data) provides the only comprehensive data on workers' compensation benefits, coverage, and employer costs for the nation, the states, the District of Columbia, and federal programs.

    Workers’ compensation insures millions of workers and their families against the risks associated with lost wages and medical costs in the event of injury on the job, work-related illness and, in extreme cases, the death of a worker. It is the only social insurance (SI) system run almost entirely by states, with no federal guidelines.

    Despite being a core component of the U.S. social insurance system, workers’ compensation often receives less attention than other SI programs, like Social Security and Medicare, in part because it has no federal aspect. To fill part of this gap, the National Academy of Social Insurance produces an annual report on state and federal workers’ compensation program benefits, costs, and coverage. This latest report provides new data for 2017, with comparison data for the five-year period from 2013 to 2017.

    Over the past ten years, Ohio has experienced a larger decrease in Workers’ Compensation benefits per $100 of payroll than all but one other state. The state saw worker benefits reduced from $1.20 per $100 in 2007 to $0.68 per $100 in 2017, or by nearly half (43%), a larger relative decline than that of any other state but Michigan ($0.85 - $0.42, or 51%). Two complementary sets of forces – legislative changes that limit access to and levels of benefits, and incentives for employers to improve worker safety – likely explain much of this decline.

    In 2003, Florida passed sweeping changes to workers’ compensation laws. These changes led to both reductions in employee benefits and improved conditions for insurance carriers, trends that largely continue through 2013-2017, the period studied for this year’s report on Workers’ Compensation Benefits, Costs, and Coverage.

    The majority of workers in Wyoming are covered by workers’ compensation because their occupations are classified as “extra-hazardous.” Employees who do not work in such jobs, however, are not required to be covered. In recent years, several large private employers, have carved out exceptions that keep their employees outside the system.

    Between 2013 and 2017, workers in Missouri saw substantial increases in both medical benefits per $100 of covered wages (of 11.8%) and in cash benefits/$100 of covered wages (of 9.6%). The latter represents the largest increase of any state. Overall, benefits for Missouri workers rose by 10.8%. Employer costs for workers’ compensation also increased in Missouri, albeit more modestly, by 5.6%, or $0.07 per $100 of covered wages, over the 5-year period.

  • 11/01/19--11:21: In Memoriam: Elijah Cummings
  • In reflecting on the passing of Representative Elijah Cummings, we at the National Academy of Social Insurance recall his stirring tribute to William (Bill) Spriggs, recipient of the 2016 Robert M. Ball Award for Outstanding Achievements in Social Insurance.

    We invite you to watch the late Congressman’s remarks during that memorable evening in which the Ball Award was presented to Bill Spriggs. (Congressman Cummings was actually a surprise guest speaker, so this intimate 7-minute recording was captured by none other than Bill Spriggs, via his mobile device!)

    Watch Elijah Cummings underscore the value of social insurance and the Academy's role, as he pays tribute to Bill Spriggs. 

    Elijah Cummings reminds us of the difference that one person like Bill Spriggs – and one organization like our Academy – can make. A few highlights from Elijah’s speech:

    “Bill Spriggs lives what he preaches, and he preaches lifting up people to make their lives the best that they can be. And it’s only fitting that this organization honor him, because this organization is about doing that very thing.”

    “I thank you for not being selfish. I thank you for not thinking that the world is limited, but thinking and knowing that the world is vast, and that you have a role to play in it. I thank you for not standing on the sidelines, even as you battle illness.”

    “As you journey on, continue to fight the good fight. Continue to surround yourself with the types of people in this room…Look to your right and look to your left and think about this…our diversity is not our problem, our diversity is our promise.”

    Please join us in keeping Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, a former member of the Academy’s Board of Directors, and the Cummings family in your thoughts during this difficult time.

    Thank you.
