Despite appreciating the importance of bridging-or perhaps because of it-we must also appreciate the challenges of any micro-macro interplay. Many psychological scientists work on social issues precisely because we are frustrated by the untested and often untenable psychological assumptions made by more macro social and economic sciences. At the psychological level of analysis, the array of approaches here to the social psychology of the Great Recession suggests a full agenda. The articles use quite a varied set of methods and forms of inequality, but these do not exhaust the possibilities for future work.
