Trends in Income Inequality in Australia

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    For many years, Australians have liked to think of themselves as egalitarian, and for much of our history we believed our income and wealth was spread around evenly. And for many years, the world also shared that view. As early as the 1880s, visitors remarked on Australia's relatively equal distribution of wealth, the lack of visible poverty, the country's generally comfortable incomes and its relatively few millionaires.
