Pawel Bukowski and Filip Novokmet

CentrePiece - The Magazine for Economic Performance from Centre for Economic Performance, LSE

Abstract: How has inequality in Poland evolved between communism and capitalism to reach one of the highest levels in Europe today? Pawel Bukowski and Filip Novokmet chart a century of data on Polish inequality, 1892-2015, to examine the key causes. Their work illustrates the central role of policies and institutions in shaping long-run inequality.
