Inequality is a topic that has gotten less attention in the years since the onset of the pandemic but signs suggest it may soon be thrust back into the center of the national conversation.

Because the pandemic did little to counteract the self-reinforcing dynamics further entrenching inequalities in both wealth and political power.

In fact, pandemic-induced dynamics in the housing market have only made things worse, with elevated prices and interest rates leading to record low affordability.

Moreover, the rise of inflation and the monetary response to it have only benefitted those with…
