Economics of Inequality by
Call Number: HB 523 .P54713 2015 Online
Publication Date: 2015
This book is an introduction to the conceptual and factual background necessary for interpreting changes in economic inequality over time. The author begins by explaining how inequality evolves and how economists measure it. In subsequent chapters, he explores variances in income and ownership of capital, and the variety of policies used to reduce these gaps. Along the way, with characteristic clarity and precision, he introduces key ideas about the relationship between labor and capital, the effects of different systems of taxation, the distinction between "historical" and "political" time, the impact of education and technological change, the nature of capital markets, the role of unions, and apparent tensions between the pursuit of efficiency and the pursuit of fairness.
