Lecture Series "Welth and Inequality
Fabian Pfeffer's talk describes wealth inequality among the 99% and pulls together some recent findings on its sources and consequences. Drawing on new cross-national evidence, it demonstrates that international differences in wealth inequality diverge sharply from international differences in income inequality. Consequently, existing comparative-explanatory frameworks, such as those entailed in welfare state regimes and varieties of capitalism, offer limited promise to explain cross-national differences in wealth inequality.
