The studies cover quite a broad set of issues affecting inequality ... The research agenda of these studies is rich and ambitious. Industrial and Labor Relations Review The volume has many merits. All of the papers are well written, substantial, methodologically solid, and quite readable at the Masters level. Industrial and Labor Relations Review ... a valuable addition to the literature ... a collection on a mix of topics, with some papers you will want to refer back to and several that will likely give rise to extensive further studies. Industrial and Labor Relations Review


This book is an in-depth discussion of rising inequalities in the western world. It explores the extent to which rising inequalities are the mechanical consequence of changes in economic fundamentals (such as changes in technological or demographic parameters), and to what extent they are the contingent consequences of country-specific and time-specific changes in institutions. Both the 'fundamentalist' view and the 'institutionalist' view have some relevance. For instance, the decline of traditional manufacturing employment since the 1970s has been associated in every developed country with a rise of labor-market inequality (the inequality of labor earnings within the working-age population has gone up in all countries), which lends support to the fundamentalist view. But, on the other hand, everybody agrees that institutional differences (minimum wage, collective bargaining, tax and transfer policy, etc.) between Continental European countries and Anglo-Saxon countries explain why disposable income inequality trajectories have been so different in those two groups of countries during the 1980s-90s, which lends support to the institutionalist view.

The chapters in this volume show the strength of both views. Through empirical evidence and new theoretical insights the contributors argue that institutions always play a crucial role in shaping inequalities, and sometimes preventing them, but that inequalities across age, sex, and skills often recur. From Sweden to Spain and Portugal, from Italy to Japan and the USA, the volume explores the diversity of the interplay between market forces and institutions. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very Good Collection of Papers on Trends in Inequality 26. Juni 2015
Von Hugh Sansom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Really 4 stars, but I'm trying to balance the reviewer who gave it one star without even looking past the title and authors.

The is a collection of previously published papers examining trends in inequality around the world. If there is a criticism of the volume, it may be that the papers are old enough to (possibly) be somewhat dated. They all were originally presented at 2 workshops in 1997 and 1998. That said, they trends in inequality persist, and so do the economic issues. There are papers by Daron Acemoglu and Roland Benabou, among others -- an excellent group of thinkers.

As of this writing, the only other review (from January 2, 2015, by "Melvey") is a standard right-wing insult to truth. That review states "Redistribution of Wealth. He got this idea from Obama, of [sic] vice versa." Well, there is no "he" here; this is an anthology. The "he" presumably is the economist now dreaded by right-wing hacks -- Thomas Piketty. The only writing in this book by Piketty is a co-authored introduction.
