The determinants of economics inequality
02 November 2011
Economic inequality in the UK grew dramatically during the 1980s and 90s and has remained at historically high levels.
A cycle linking wealth, education, the labour market and globalisation has created the conditions for inequality to flourish and feed on itself. By examining the policies of more equal countries, we find that inequality is not inevitable and that it can be effectively tackled by addressing its root causes.
