Dr. Sophia Mitra, Professor of economics, co-director of the disability studies program, and founding director of the research consortium on disability at Fordham University, discusses the association between disability and economic outcomes. She describes how the current economic system contributes to economic deprivation for people with disabilities, including unemployment, lack of health insurance, low educational attainment, and more. Dr. Mitra explains that people with disabilities have higher costs of living, and describes policies that could help reduce economic inequities for Americans with disabilities.
