The Changing Nature of Inequality in South Africa
AbstractThe dispersion of racial incomes in South Africa has been declining since the mid 1970s. This has been accompanied by rising within-group inequality, especially amongst blacks, driven by growing unemployment. In this study, it is argued that labour market changes resulting from the breakdown of apartheid in the workplace dominated shifts in the distribution of income during the 1970s and 1980s.
