Education, Income Distribution and Growth final reason to suspect a stratification-reliability relationship is that
unobserved peer group characteristics are likely to be more strongly associated with
observed characteristics in markets that are more heavily stratified.

We focus on the impact of two main policy changes: first, the increase in the rice export quota and the significant increase in the price of rice, especially in the south; second, liberalization of the fertilizer market and the sharp drop in the price of fertilizer. To this end, we document changes in the empirically observable “institutional environment,” exploring changes in rice and other crop prices as well as fertilizer prices.

Latin America is often singled out for its high and persistent income inequality. Toward the end of the 1990s, however, income concentration began to fall across the region. Of the seventeen countries for which comparable data are available, twelve have experienced a decline, particularly since 2000. This book is among the first efforts to understand what happened in these countries and why.

Another concern over raising taxes on high-income households is that it might influence decisions to start businesses. If
increased taxes reduce returns to investing in small business ventures, high-income individuals might be less likely to take
risks, and entrepreneurial activity might decline. Some studies conclude that higher taxes reduce entrepreneurship, but a
greater number conclude the opposite.
In this chapter we discuss the distribution of income. As we shall see, this topic raises some fundamental questions about the role of economic policy. One of the Ten Principles of Economics in Chapter 1 is that governments can sometimes improve market outcomes. This possibility is particularly important when considering the distribution of income.

A dissertation submitted in partial satisfaction of the requirements fog the degree Doctor of Philosophy in Economics Graphical illustration of market equilibrium
From Theorem 2 and its corollaries, the income distribution in any equilibrium is
divided into J quantiles, with wealthier quantiles living in more preferredhigher
x jδ +μ j districts. In Appendix D, I show that this necessary condition is also sufficient
for an assignment rule to be an equilibrium allocation. Here, I use these results to construct
possible equilibria under different (δ , J) combinations....
Uninsured low-income childless adults are a diverse group that includes men and women living in all
parts of Wisconsin. About half of these adults are working full time or are self-employed, working full
time. Over half have not had a checkup during the past two years. Twenty-two percent of low-income
uninsured childless adults have a chronic condition; that is, have been diagnosed as having arthritis, heart
disease, diabetes, cancer, or a stroke.
This year's Latin American Economic Outlook focuses on those in the middle of the income distribution in Latin America. If these middle sectors have stable employment and reasonably robust incomes, then, arguably, they provide a solid foundation for economic progress. Moreover, following the political role often attributed to the middle classes by historians and sociologists, they might also support moderate but progressive political platforms in Latin America's democracies.

A great gulf exists between what is known and what
should be known about women in midlife and older, in
order to understand their lives. In Jamaica, women over
fifty years old are taken for granted, although demographically
and socially they have been, and continue
to be, a force to be reckoned with in the society. They
are such a force because of their positive contributions
to family, community and the economy.
