Changes in the Distribution of Economic Wellbeing in Finland

  • Päivi Mattila-Wiro
Registered author(s):

    This research study consists of four self-contained essays on 1. intra-household inequality, 2. the value of household production and consumption possibilities, 3. the income inequality effects of A Finnish Work Incentive Trap Reform and 4. the children's wellbeing. All the essays focus on changes in the distribution of economic wellbeing in Finland during the past decades. More precisely, they concentrate on the development of income inequality and poverty and those many factors that cause changes in income distribution within and between households. The essays also include the era of strong economic and structural turns in Finland, the 1990s. This is the period during which Finland experienced a severe depression, drastic cuts in social security, a time of recovery, and fast growing income inequality. We have a lot to learn from all the reforms and amendments made during that time and the effects that all the changes that were made had on economic wellbeing.
