|Title:||Fiscal adjustments and income inequality: a first assessment|
Sousa, Ricardo M.
|Abstract(s):||Using a statistical approach to identify fiscal adjustments, we find that fiscal consolidation appears to shorten the income gap. Fiscal austerity plans that succeed in bringing public debt to a sustainable path seem to be more likely to reduce inequality. Expansionary fiscal adjustments are particularly important to promote changes in the income distribution.|
