Inequality in 3D – measurement and implications for macroeconomic theory

Project description

Towards a better understanding of the forces behind growing inequality

The EU-funded project 3D-In-Macro aims to contribute towards a better understanding of inequality and its macroeconomic implications. Using microdata, the project members will study the economy down to the household level along three important dimensions: consumption, income and wealth. The overarching aim of the project is to quantify the type of micro-heterogeneity that matters for macroeconomic theory and thus assist in the development of current and future macroeconomic models. Furthermore, a better understanding of the forces behind growing inequality may provide input to the current active debates on the issue, both within academia and among policy makers.
