Evidence and perceptions of inequality in Australia. /

by Chesters, Jenny | Australian National University. Centre for Economic Policy esearch | Western, John.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Centre for Economic Policy Research 2010Description: PDF.Other title: Australian National University. Centre for Economic Policy.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: February 2010Summary: Following the increasing impact of globalising economic forces world wide Australia, like many other liberal democracies, moved to adopt neoliberal economic policies with an emphasis on increasing deregulation of economic markets. The economic changes instituted since the 1980s have fundamentally restructured the economy and created a more flexible labour market. Jobs growth has been concentrated in industries that rely heavily on casual and part-time workers. Consequently, the proportion of all jobs that are permanent and full-time has declined. In this paper, we are interested in how these changes have affected the level of income and wealth inequality within Australian society. Although there is a general agreement amongst researchers that there has not been a significant increase in inequality in regard to either income or wealth between the 1980s and the 2000s, some researchers argue that earnings inequality has increased. There is also evidence of a mismatch between objective measures of inequality and the perceptions of the Australian people, with a significant majority of respondents in a national survey conducted in 2005 believing that Australia had become a more divided and less fair society since the 1980s. The present paper examines these disparities and attempts to account for them.Availability: (1)

She argues that two enduring features of the Brotherhood s approach have been the recognition of the structural dimension of poverty and the related need to address poverty by preventive social action rather than only by remedial attention; but she also notes variations over the years, for example in the emphasis on individual agency and empowerment.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Does the persistence of gender and class inequalities refute the notion that lives are becoming more individualized ? Leading international authorities document how gender inequalities are changing and how many inequalities of earlier eras are being eradicated. However, this book shows there are new barriers and constraints that are slowing progress in attaining a more egalitarian society. Taking the new global economy into account, the expert contributors to this book examine the conflicts between different types of feminisms, revise old debates about ?equality? and ?difference? in the gendered nature of work and care, and propose new and innovative policy solutions.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
