Inequality and Luxembourg
The impact of recent economic developments on the distribution of income in Luxembourg
This lecture analyses inequality in one of the wealthiest countries worldwide. Traditionally, Luxembourg has been a relatively equal society. However, the recent economic developments are affecting the distribution of income in a less equal manner.
- What does the new digital economy mean in this respect?
- Is there polarisation in the labour market?
- Is growing inequality a result of prices in the housing market?
- What active public policies could be employed to reduce inequalities?
The Minister Nicolas Schmit offers a comparative picture of the recent changes in the income distribution in Luxembourg and suggests policies to render it more equal.
