Autor(es): Marcelo Cortes Neri
Obras do autor

This book develops a unified approach on measurement, causes and consequences of income distribution changes in Brazil during the last 30 years. The main objective is to test the limits of this research agenda based on the processing of various microdata sources, followed by a quite lively public debate. We look at both the mean and the inequality of income in periods of improvement and of deterioration. Each chapter gauges a different dataset or dimension of wellbeing evolution.
