Or we can restore an economy where everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same set of rules. Frenze, who is now a senior economist on the staff of the Joint Economic Committee, published a series of papers that exposed the CBO’s manipulations.17 When the CBO’s methods were revealed, it was unable to defend them.18 First the CBO distanced itself from the estimates of enormous income gains by the top 1 percent. If it is a factor in the recovery slowing, then government, it seems, should try to do something about it.

The remaining sources of income such as property income were insignificant and had a disequalizing effect on income distribution. Thus it’s not surprising when we sum the two, net private savings (green) fell from a high of 13.0% of GDP in 1973 to a low of 4.0% of GDP in 2007. There are trivial differences between our estimates of top incomes and top income shares for the United States as a whole, and those calculated by Piketty and Saez.

From 1930 to 1970 the gap between the rich and poor closed, but from the 1980's to 2000's this trend has reversed itself in the U. In modern economics, the term “capital” has been purged of its ideological fire and is treated as just another “factor of production,” which, like labor and land, earns a competitive rate of return based upon its productivity. They buy and sell shares, hoping to get a return on investments in productive resources that other people – private shareholders, workers and taxpayers – have made.

When evaluating whether inequality is beneficial or not, it is important to know the causes of inequality. This second method takes their massive economic gains into account. In reality, the Lorenz curve falls below the 45-degree line of equality, because the bottom groups in the income distribution earn considerably less than their equal shares. (In figure 1, it takes the bottom half of the households to account for just 10 percent of the aggregate income.) The degree to which the Lorenz curve departs from the 45-degree line of equality is a measure of income inequality.

Nothing in the article even remotely makes sense. For it goes without saying that in a free economy, some people will always earn much more money than others, and a given person will, during some stages of his life, earn much more than in other stages. Richard Wilkinson is the co-author with Kate Pickett of The Spirit Level: Why Greater Equality Makes Societies Stronger (2009). S. had the second-highest level of inequality, after Chile. Wolff: The bottom 20 percent basically have zero wealth.

Organisations which focus on creating community and public benefits, such as those with co-operative and collaborative structures, should be supported. If 1 percent of the population receives 1 percent of total income, and 5 percent of the population receives 5 percent of total income, and all other population percentages receive their corresponding percentages of total income — that is, if there is no gap between the population and income percentages — then the Gini coefficient is 0, representing perfect equality of incomes.

The political economy approach, developed by Alesian and Rodrik (1994) and Persson and Tabellini (1994), argues that inequality is harmful for economic development because inequality generates a pressure to adopt redistributive policies that have an adverse effect on investment and economic growth. Krueger wrote that borrowing likely helped many households make up for this shift, which became more difficult in the wake of the 2007–2009 recession. [94] Inequality in land and income ownership is negatively correlated with subsequent economic growth.

New World wealth:income ratios were not as high as in the old world (slaves were so valuable that how you treat this form of "capital" makes a difference here), so it's a bit of an uneven U with the wealth:income ratio reaching an unprecedented level in the contemporary United States. In the eight decades before the recent recession, there was never a period when as much as 9 percent of American gross domestic product went to companies in the form of after-tax profits.

Russ: Sometimes from tax returns, sometimes from government samples of various populations. And they seem to have convinced the liberal wonkosphere that the optimal top income-tax rates are right around 80 percent. Employment: Employed persons aged 25 to 64 as a share of the population aged 25 to 64. In the theoretical literature, this constant factor is usually called the Pareto coefficient (labeled bi in Table A5). 14 Combining this property of the distribution of incomes with published tax data on the number of tax units and the amount of income at certain levels, it is possible to estimate the top decile (or the highest-earning top 10 percent of tax units), and within the top decile, a series of percentiles such as the average annual income earned by the highest-income 1 percent of tax units, up to and including the top 0.01 percent fractile (i.e., the average annual income earned by the richest 1 percent of the top 1 percent of tax units). 15 Our data series here matches most closely what Piketty and Saez (2001) label as “variant 3,” a time series of average top incomes and income shares that includes capital gains.

Between 1992 and 2002, the 400 highest incomes reported to the Internal Revenue Service more than doubled, even after the collapse of the dot.com bubble in 2000. A new study from the Congressional Budget Office, for example, found that income of the top 1 percent of households increased by 275 percent in the 30-year period ending in 2007. From 1930 to 1970 the gap between the rich and poor closed, but from the 1980's to 2000's this trend has reversed itself in the U.
