Meeting Summary: This workshop represents the continuation of a long-standing series of successful workshops held at SFI under the heading “Dynamics of wealth inequality,” and is the second workshop funded by an NSF IBSS grant entitled “The effect of social networks on inequality.” The purpose of the workshop is to bring together a large team of anthropologists, economists, and complex systems scientists in order to study the co-evolution of social networks and wealth inequality in small-scale human societies. This work tests predictions that the structure of social networks affects the degree of inequality in wealth, and explore the mechanisms by which this may occur.
