Inequality conference and MSD report on inequality figures

Hey, I didn’t realise the Institute of Policy Studies was doing their inequality thing today.  The outline suggests they are asking good questions – we need to ask about causes before we can really interpert policy!  This summary from Bryan Perry from MSD on the data was neat as well – clear and too the point.  How we interpret this data is a much bigger and separate question 🙂

I will have a look at the papers, and Max’s book (which I have purchased) when I get a chance (next couple of weeks).

I would note that I’ve stated a few posts around this in the past:  Top 1% in NZ, middle class rant, middle class rant 2, median incomes, Spirit Level review.  But you could read the latest report on trends by MSD for more up-to-date information!
