Where have (almost) all the wealthy gone? Spatial decomposition of wealth trends in France, 1820-1939
This paper uses a unique database of individual estates to explore the geographical dimension in the historical evolution of the wealth distribution in France since 1820 onwards. We use inequality index decomposition techniques and micro-simulations of wealth distributions to stress the differences in economic growth and wealth accumulation between rural areas, provincial towns and Paris.
