Demystifying Rising Inequality in Asia
Huang, Bihong; Morgan, Peter J.; Yoshino, Naoyuki | February 2019
Income inequality is one of the most profound social, economic, and political challenges of our time. The gap between the rich and the poor has been regarded as a major concern for policy makers. This gap is at its highest level in decades for developed economies, while the inequality trend has been rising in many developing countries. In Asia, despite recent economic growth, income distribution has been worsening as well. This book contributes to the existing literature on inequality in Asia by overviewing the trend of inequality in Asia and investigating the drivers of rising inequality in various Asian countries.
