Finn Tarp Co-Edits New Book on Inequality

Oxford University Press has published the open access book ‘Inequality in the Developing World’ as part of its UNU-WIDER Studies in Development Economics series.

This new member of the series is co-edited by Professor Finn Tarp, who also contributed as author of a chapter on China’s major income inequality trends over the past 40 years.

Throughout its 384 pages, other leading scholars such as Martin Ravallion and Nobel Laureate Joseph E. Stiglitz, present a comprehensive new analysis of global inequality and inequality in five of the world's largest developing countries—Brazil, China, India, Mexico, and South Africa.

The book is a great input to the current debate on inequality and development. The lessons drawn from these contexts are taken back into the global analysis of inequality and social mobility and the policies needed to address inequality presented in a concluding synthesis chapter by Finn Tarp and his co-editors.
