The evolution of inequality in Latin America in the 21st century: Patterns, drivers and causal hypotheses

Francesco Bogliacino () and Daniel Rojas Lozano

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: In this article, we show the evolution of inequality for the largest economies of the Latin American region in the 21st century, with separate consideration of income and wealth. We analyse the drivers of the changes in inequality and possible underlying causes, including the role of the new wave of leftist governments.
