Publication date : 2011

Number of pages : 7

In this ETUI Policy Brief Rory O’Farrell looks at some of the mechanisms linking inequality and the health of the economy and reviews the evidence on how various inequality measures have changed during the crisis. He warns about measures in the context of austerity programmes that will serve to raise inequality, casting doubt on the foundations of any recovery.
