On the trends over time in the degree of concentration of wealth in Finland

Matti Tuomala and Jouko Vilmunen ()

Finnish Economic Papers, 1988, vol. 1, issue 2, 184-190

Abstract: The aim of this paper is to illuminate the forces that may reasonably be assumed to underlie the variation observed across different wealth shares in Finland. The estimated equations, which provide a reasonable fit to the data, support, at least in a proximate manner, the views present in a simple »Meade process». The forces for equality (»popular wealth») and inequality (profits) in wealth distribution come out clearly in the empirical results.
