Does incarceration affect inequality during old age?

In this article, I examine the degree to which there might be long-lasting or late-life consequences in store for individuals who have been convicted of committing a crime. The goal is to determine whether the mass incarceration that the nation witnessed during the 1980s and 1990s might portend widening inequality in the future, when this generation gets old.
