Abstract

The Economist's recent briefing "Measuring the 1%: Economists are Rethinking the Numbers on Inequality" has caused a stir amongst inequality scholars. The report, published at the end of November 2019, suggests that new US research has refuted the widely held view that economic inequality has been rising in recent decades. Researchers at LSE’s International Inequalities Institute disagreed with their take, so we set out to explain why in a brief rejoinder that was published by The Economist.
