The authors explore a new framework for evaluating economic development projects. This framework is based on a job-chain approach. Each new job created by an economic development incentive is filled by an employee who leaves behind another job. In turn, that job may be filled by someone who leaves behind their old job, etc.
This volume presents cross-nationally comparative evidence on income inequality trends, women's employment and its effect on inequality, the distribution of wealth, and the interaction of politics with inequality across several mainly high-income countries.
This volume focuses on the increasing evidence of income inequality. It analyzes if income inequality is a problem in the U.S., what causes it, how race, gender and ethnicity affect income inequality, and what should be done about it. Essays are arranged in a pro versus con format to provide readers with more than one intelligent viewpoint. Essay sources include Steven J. Markovich, Ariane Hegewisch, Claudia Williams, Signe-Mary McKernan, and Ronald Brownstein.
