This 2007 book addresses important contemporary concerns about social justice. It presents detailed economic evidence, but analyses it in a manner that is engaging and readily accessible to the non-specialist reader. Who Gets What? examines what has been happening to incomes and wealth in Australia, what causes increased economic inequality, and the possibility of creating a more egalitarian society. It looks at who is rich, which social groups are still in poverty, and the policies that could redistribute income and wealth more effectively.

• The most thorough and up-to-date account of the distribution of wealth in Australia • Written by Australia's leading expert on the economics and politics of inequality • Carefully examines the factors that underpin the recent trend towards inequality, and considers how this trend might be reversed
