2011 Fay Gale Lecture : Trends and Recent Developments in Income Inequality in Australia Other events...
The 2011 Fay Gale lecture will be given by Denise Doiron, Associate Professor, Australian School of Business, UNSW.

After a decade of stable even slightly improving income inequality, Australia suffered a sharp widening of its income distribution in the late 2000’s. Although this U-turn is not unique to Australia, the change has seemed more extreme with Australia’s rank in 30 OECD countries falling from 15 in 2004 to 24 in 2008 in terms of income equality.

This lecture will review these changes and the broad underlying causes. In particular, changes in income inequality are set against a robust labour market and a smoothly widening earnings distribution.

RSVP: This is a free public lecture, however seats are limited. Please RSVP your attendance to [email protected]

Refreshments will be served in the new University Club colonnade immediately following the lecture.

The Fay Gale lecture was established by the Academy of Social Sciences in Australia to honour the late Professor Gwendoline Fay Gale AO (1932–2008), the Academy’s first female President (1997–2000) and an eminent social scientist. Professor Gale was Vice-Chancellor at The University of Western Australia from 1990-1997.
