Los determinantes de los cambios en la desigualdad de ingresos en Argentina : Evidencia y temas pendientes (Spanish)

This paper reviews from a critical perspective the evolution of inequality in income distribution in Argentina from the mid-seventies until the mid-2000. The work presents new empirical evidence and examines the existing literature about the factors behind these trends. The review identified also some potentially important determinants which cannot be fully assessed from the available evidence. Most of these factors are related to state action in areas of policy and social protection. This study develops a series of future proposals to help fill these gaps in knowledge. The paper suggests new tools of data collection for a deeper understanding of the factors that benefit both academic research and the policymaking process.
