Research Seminar

Long-run income and wealth inequality, and the potential impact on inheritance flows

Date: 19 September 2014
Time: 13.00–14.30

Jesper Roine, Associate Professor at Stockholm Institute of Transition Economics

I will present what we know about long run income and wealth distribution across countries and also connect these findings to potential theories for the dynamics we observe. I will also connect to ongoing work on how these findings potentially relate to the importance of inheritance in relation to other incomes.

The seminar will be based on the following two papers:

Long-Run Trends in the Distribution of Income and Wealth (pdf)
Inherited wealth over the path of development: Sweden, 1810­2010 (pdf)
