Project outline

This programme was established in 2016 as part of the Oxford Martin School’s research partnership with Citi, and forms a core element of research in the Department of Social Policy and Intervention and the Institute for New Economic Thinking at the Oxford Martin School on employment, equity and growth.

The research team of Professor Brian Nolan, Dr. Matteo Richiardi and Dr. Luis Valenzuela Rivera are investigating the drivers of economic inequality, the ways inequality impacts on growth, prosperity and opportunity, the relationship between increasing income inequality and the concentration of wealth, and policy responses including via the tax and transfer systems for working-age households and investment in human capital while supporting living standards.


The initial report from the programme is available here.
