Instead, they recycle the usual bromides about the benefits of free trade and assurances that everything will work out for the best. This gives universities an incentive to recruit researchers with strong publication records as the deadline for the assessment approaches, as a way to boost their REF scores, says Martin. “With more competition and fewer rewards, it makes income inequality much more intense.” An analysis of UK full-professor salaries posted online in July suggests that some universities — particularly lower-ranked ones that want to improve their REF performance — are using high salaries to recruit researchers with high-quality papers to boost their scores (see go.nature.com/2cwnyjj ).

It is the interest that fosters the inequality, not the debt backed money per se. This public debate is dominated by the discussion of the top 1 percent. The Treasury Department study found that very few of those who started out poor (i.e., in the bottom 20 percent of income) in 1979 remained poor. It became much easier for the Party modernists to formulate a criticism of the leftist approach as "utopian" and at odds with the principles of Marxian economic theory (as interpreted within the Stalinist version of Marxian economic theory).

The important corollary is that the study of long-term changes in the income distribution must distinguish between changes in the shares of resident groups-resident within either one or two generations-and changes in the income shares of. the very distinction between "low" and "high" income classes loses its meaning. and the share of the units that moved into that specific group. therefore. data on such an income structure are essential. and this should be done for the shares of "residents" and "n~igrants" within all ordinal groups. from units that remain within a group through their generation but whose children move up or down on the relative economic scale in their time. we should be able to trace secular income levels not only through a single generation but at least through two-connecting the incomes of a given generation with those of its immediate descendants. even when classified by secular income levels. be necessary and useful to study separately the relative share of units that. deciles. remain within one ordinal group and whose children-through their generation-are also within that group. particularly in a study of long-term changes in shares and in inequalities in the distribution.

The below chart from Miles Corak (University of Ottawa) shows the Gini coefficient on the x-axis and intergenerational earnings elasticity (i.e. income stickiness) on the y-axis. Perotti (1996) after carefully examining the various channels through which income inequality may affect economic growth provided support for the Galor-Zeira hypothesis showing that inequality is indeed associated with lower level of human capital formation, and lower human capital formation is associated with lower levels of economic growth.
