【报告摘要】

Both top incomes and low incomes (poverty) are important issues because the public care about it. People have a sense of fairness and have views on whether the distribution of economic resources is fair. Given this intrinsic public interest in inequality, our first job as economists is to help enlighten the debate by providing transparent figures that the broad public can understand. Once we have appropriately measured top incomes, wealth and poverty, we then want to understand the effects of Tax/Benefits-systems on the inequality. Drawing on the author’s work (and Branco Milanovic. Agnus Deaton, Tony Atkinson, Joseph Stiglitz, Thomas Piketty and Martin Ravallion), this lecture presents comparative evidence on top incomes, wealth and relative income poverty.
