Income Redistribution: An International Perspective

Author Info

Abstract

Many view global income inequality as a problem. Income redistribution from the rich countries to poor countries is often offered as a solution. However, such redistribution would have to be politically acceptable to voters in rich countries to occur. Using a constructed distribution of world income, the authors show that even modest income redistribution efforts would impose significant costs on taxpayer-voters in rich countries. They conclude such income redistribution is unlikely. Copyright 1996 by Kluwer Academic Publishers
