Income Gap Between Rich and Poor Discussed in New Social Research Study Now Available at MarketPublishers.com

LONDON – Income inequality has been on the rise in most countries since the early 1980s, including in advanced, emerging, and transition economies. Explanations for this increase include technological progress, government policies on the use of taxes and social transfers to redistribute income, changing social norms, and globalization. Today, the poorest 20% of the world’s population receive only 1.27% of global income, while the richest 1% alone receive 13.08%. With unemployment and austerity measures hitting the poor and “squeezed middle” the most, public resentment against inequality has reached its peak.

New research study “The Haves and Have Nots: The Impact of the Widening Gap Between Rich and Poor” worked out by Euromonitor International gives top-level insights across markets and within consumer segments providing a thorough examination of how the rise of an increasingly wealthy elite at the top and a growing pool of low-income consumers at the bottom is affecting household expenditure patterns, and how all this is set to impact marketers.

Data coverage: market sizes (historic and forecasts), company shares, brand shares and distribution data.
