Abstract

Alan Manning writes that while the very richest have seen their incomes significantly pull away from those on low and middle incomes in the last 30 years, this has not been matched by a rise in the public’s desire to see incomes redistributed by government. While there is a significant public distrust for government interventionism in this area, we need to think harder about solutions to income inequalities.
