Income distribution and welfare

International Workshop organized for the Bocconi University Centennial

Bocconi University - Theatre N03 New Building
via Sarfatti 25 Milano (Italy)
May 30th, 31st, and June 1st, 2002

To commemorate 100 years since its foundation Università Luigi Bocconi organized and host an international workshop on income distribution and welfare. Poverty, inequality, mobility, polarization, and, more in general, the distribution of income, are increasingly recognized as crucial aspects of the world economies. The world is getting rich at a pace never experienced before, income increased, inflation decreased, the stock market soared in the past decade, however there is a worry in the minds of many. Present social and technological changes seem, indeed, to generate a boost in productivity and economic growth but, at the same time, a rise in the disparities between developed and under-developed countries, in welfare differentials among individuals in the same country. The world we are living in is slowly splitting into two groups, "the haves and the have nots" and large segments of the population are not reaping the benefits of economic growth. Università Luigi Bocconi will bring together a distinguished group of academics to shed light on these issues, in particular the themes of workshop will be: the measurement of welfare, inequality and poverty; the measurement of polarization and social exclusion; fiscal systems and the distribution of income and wealth; income dynamics and mobility.
