However, efforts to address income inequality must confront ideologies justifying inequality as the natural (and hence fair) outcome of individual differences in skills, talents, and effort, ignoring structural causes.

    This book explains how economic inequality continues to grow in the United States. For the past three decades, America has steadily become a nation of haves and have-nots. Our incomes are increasingly drastically unequal: the top 1% of Americans collect almost 20% of the nation’s income-more than double their share in   In , an unusual book topped bestseller lists around the world: Capital in the Twenty-first Century, an page scholarly tome by the French economist Thomas Piketty that examined the massive increase in the proportion of income and wealth accruing to the world’s richest people.

Despite the growing importance of inequalities in policy debates, it is still difficult to compare inequality levels across European countries and to tell how European growth has been shared across income groups.

This column draws on new evidence combining surveys, tax data, and national accounts to document a rise in income inequality in most European countries between Figure 2 scrutinises the factors behind the decline in EU income inequality (the same way I did in my previous post on global income inequality – see that post for explanations).

The main reason behind the decline of was income convergence: central, eastern and also southern European countries were able to increase their average income relative to richer European nations.

The European Union is excellently equipped to pursue the most urgent issues facing the advanced world: combating environmental damage and climate change, coping with the massive aftermath of the coronavirus crisis, reforming globalisation, regulating financialised capitalism, reducing material inequalities and reconciling the future of work in.

Poor growth performance over the past decades in Europe has increased concerns for rising income dispersion and social exclusion.

European authorities have recently launched the Europe strategy which aims to improve social inclusion in Europe on top of already existing European regional policies aiming to reduce regional disparities through stimulating growth in areas where.

Since the s, the Left in most western European countries has relied on a combination of four strategies to tackle inequalities in the distribution of income and wealth. Firstly, the pursuit of full employment through Keynesian demand management. Secondly, state planning and nationalisation of the means of production.

While more women break into the tech industry, the pay gap persists. I examine key findings from Hired's recent report on the state of wage inequality in technology. It has been a wake-up call, for society and the wider European football community.

It is a reality that billions of fans sometimes pay more attention to football than to their elected political.

Background In order to support the case for inter-sectoral policies to tackle health inequalities, the authors explored the economic costs of socioeconomic inequalities in health in the European Union (EU). Methods Using recent data on inequalities in self-assessed health and mortality covering most of the EU, health losses due to socioeconomic inequalities in health were calculated by.

The question of income inequality is a major issue in economic and policy debates. Not surprisingly, economists and politicians often disagree about the advantages and disadvantages of income inequality.

Understanding this debate is important because it provides insight into the rationale behind policy decisions and. As the figure above indicates, there was a sharp increase in income inequality among the citizens of the EU28 inreaching the level observed in the United States at that time.

A major reason for this increase was the massive output declines in the central and eastern European states during their transition from socialist to market-based economies. The European Parliament has estimated that losses linked to health inequalities cost around % of GDP within the European Union (14) - a figure almost as high as the EU's defense spending (% of GDP).

(15) The above figures have been taken from WHO reports. However, byincome inequality in Ireland rose topushing us up the table as the likes of the UK and Italy and many eastern European countries managed to narrow the income gap.

The ability to make ends meet is a vital issue for many Europeans and an important priority for European policymakers. In the immediate aftermath of the economic crisis the initial focus was to mitigate and reverse job loss, particularly in the countries most affected.

With employment back to pre-crisis levels and unemployment on the decline, attention is turning to. The State’s “unusually high” incidence of low pay and weak labour protections is driving inequality, with the working and lower-middle classes struggling more to make ends meet, a new report.We have said that the women’s movement changed American life in many ways but that gender inequality persists.

Let’s look at examples of such inequality, much of it taking the form of institutional discrimination, which, as we saw in Chapter 7 “Deviance, Crime, and Social Control”, can occur even if it is not intended to start with gender inequality in income and the.socio-economic inequalities in health has certainly Health Inequalities: Europe in Profile 4 1.
