Strategic Research

Aims

This research project will address a wide range of inequalities and how these are modified by public policy in the short run and over a life-cycle. This information is a crucial input to government’s decision how to finance the welfare system and redistribute income while maintaining incentives to work and avoiding poverty traps. The project is divided into five strands. On the basis of new knowledge we can state what are the lessons for policies in order to reduce inequalities.

Alaston totuus mahdollisuuksien tasa-arvosta

Talousnobelisti Milton Friedman piti ”mahdollisuuksien tasa-arvoa” ensiarvoisena. Teoksessaan Capitalism and Freedom (1962), hän kirjoitti: ”Tarkastellaan kahta yhteiskuntaa, joissa vuositulojen jakauma on sama. Ensimmäisessä on paljon liikkuvuutta ja muutosta, jonka seurauksena …
