Description

The lectures illustrate each concept with actual data and episodes for a variety of countries and regions (USA, UK, Central Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, China, Australia, Latin America, OECD countries and others). 

The course examines the various determinants (causes) of income and wealth inequality referring to differences across individuals and social segments in asset ownership, education, skills, wage formation processes, property of assets, savings capacity, relative power of capital and labor and fiscal policies oriented to reduce inequality and closes with an analysis of the economic elites, the middle class and the working class under capitalism. The courses does not need a previous training in economics and statistics although it is useful also for those with this background.

Who is the target audience?
  • The course is open to everybody with an interest in the subject matter. A previous introductory knowledge in economics and statistics is a plus but it is NOT required to take this course.
