Lifetime distribution and redistribution is analysed in this book, in far more detail than has been attempted before. A dynamic cohort microsimulation model is used as an exciting new tool to analyse several questions which have previously been almost impossible to answer. These questions concern income distribution and redistribution, social security and income tax incidence. This book will be of interest to those working in social and economic policy who are concerned about such issues. It will also be of interest to the rapidly growing numbers of researchers and government analysts constructing microsimulation models.

Industry Reviews

... a very good book that moves us further along in our understanding of what such a distribution would look like and how taxation policies and income support policies can alter them. I recommend this book to anyone interested in questions of income distribution and redistribution. Journal of Economic Literature
