Inequality and Poverty

Inequality and Poverty

Research theme

The work carried out in this new Broad Theme focuses on issues of inequality between people: inequality of opportunity, inequality of income and wealth, inequality in financial preparation for retirement, inequality in access to the labour market, gender inequality. We are also interested in the intergenerational transmission of inequalities and in social mobility - or lack thereof. Issues of guaranteed minimum income will also be addressed.

Issues of inequality in the distribution of income and wealth from a macroeconomic perspective are also examined, including the macroeconomic and distributional impacts of taxation. 

The work of the Research Chair in Intergenerational Economics is at the heart of the Inequality and Poverty theme.
