Researchers from Europe, the US, Japan, and Australia present 11 essays on the causes and consequences of income inequality. They address how inequality is measured, the level of equal opportunities across countries, the role of education, the effect of changing occupational structure, the consequences of changing productivity within a firm, the role of stagnating average real wages, the decline of union membership, the effect of maternal labor supply on labor market outcomes of children, the contribution of intergenerational transmission of skills to the black/white earnings gap, and the link between income inequality and health.
