Seeing the 1980s as a period when the rich grew richer but the poor poorer, the essays in this volume explore the disparities in wealth and income, comparing the fortunes of American households with those in other industrialized nations. Demographic and structural changes, saving behaviour, earning gaps, gender, education and race are analyzed in these essays, and methodological and measurement issues explored. The book also discusses policies to counteract growing inequality and proposes remedies.
