Branko Milanovic Tweet on Labour Income and Inequality

This is an incredibly interesting Tweet. The graph below shows Gini of Household per capita income around 2013. The conclusion Professor Branko Milanovic draws is important – less unequal countries have a more equal distribution of labour income. It might sound an obvious point to make, but it is hotly debated whether the distribution of labour income impacts on inequality.

Note: Using the UK spelling of Labour – because that is what we use in South Africa.
