More equal distribution of wealth makes people happier23rd January 2020
Since the liberalization of the Western economies in the 1980s and 1990s, income inequality has increased dramatically. In the public debate, the question arises how this inequality impacts societies and what role it plays in the functioning of the economy. Bjorn Lous has studied this issue, based on the question: How do the various aspects of economic freedom relate to (inequality of) life satisfaction and trust through their relationship with income inequality? His most important conclusion is that when only few people profit from a high average income, this negatively affects the life satisfaction of societies as a whole. He will defend his PhD thesis on this subject at Tilburg University on Friday, January 31.
