Since the late 1970s, Britain has become a more unequal society. This book analyzes the dramatic widening of the income distribution, the growth of poverty, and the factors that have driven them. It examines how government spending and the taxes that pay for it affect people's incomes, why they take the forms they do, what we think of them, how things have changed since New Labour came to power in 1997, and the future pressures that any government will face as the population ages.

Note Libraio

This book is about inequality, how the State affects distribution through its spending programmers and through taxation, and what the public thinks of these issues. It describes and analyses one of the biggest social changes in Britain since the Second World War: the dramatic widening of income distribution since the end of the 1970s, the growth of poverty, and the factors that driven them.
