''Income distribution changes across the 1990s expansion: the role of taxes and transfers''
( 2009, Vol. 29 No.4 )
We analyze the redistributive role played by governments during the 1990s expansionary economic cycle in several OECD countries. We find a duality among countries: while governments in the Euro-area play a crucial role in the redistributive process, government interventions reduce the equalitarian effect of the market in the Anglo-Saxon economies.
