Inequality Around the World

This research is dedicated to all facets of inequality: (I) how within-national inequalities are affected by macro economic policies or trade, (II) how and why regional inequalities within countries expand or not, (III) what were the effect of transition from state-controlled to market economies on inequality, and last but not the least, (IV) what is the state of global (world-wide) inequality between world citizens. In addition to a selection of papers, the site also offers several inequality datasets.
