PDF (Accepted Version (Revised))
This paper looks at the rise of inequality in the OECD since the mid-1970s and argues that this has been a deliberate result of government policy changes over the past 35 years. It then looks at the rise of inequality in Australia and documents some of the policy changes that have led to this, and the role of the leadership of the ACTU in accepting this shift.
