Inequality and its socioeconomic impacts

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    This article assesses trends in income inequality and household income levels in Australia since the 1980s, as well as the different causal factors associated with these trends in different periods. Selected socioeconomic outcomes-health, crime and punishment-are discussed and the article argues that trends in these outcomes appear more likely to be related to trends in these causal factors, rather than changes in income inequality, per se.
