UK budget: too little, too late — Michael Roberts Blog

Rishi Sunak, the ex-hedge fund UK Chancellor, has presented the first budget of the Johnson government. The first thing is that the government is increasing spending by £30bn this fiscal year (of which £12bn is for handling the coronavirus outbreak) and plans to spend £175bn more than previously in this parliament. The government’s policy decisions […]

Prices of production and the UK

Paul Cockshott's Blog

Paul Cockshott

I have been working on producing a table of capital stocks for the UK by industry and type of asset. The aim is to have the data required to set out hypothetical national economic plans for the UK. These would enable exploring things like how to restructure the economy to shift to low CO 2 emissions or how to eliminate the trade deficit. But having done the initial preparation of a capital matrix it becomes possible to use it for other purposes. One is to test price of production theory.
A substantial body of literature now exists on empirical tests of Marxian price theories. Researchers have performed comparisons between theoretical price structures derived from Marx’s Capital[8] and observed market prices[109112124515616]…. Many of these studies only use flows of…

World Income, Inequality and Murder

Michael Höhle

We follow up on last weeks post on using Gapminder data to study the world’s income distribution. In order to assess the inequality of the distribution we compute the Gini coefficient for the world’s income distribution by Monte Carlo approximation and visualize the result as a time series. Furthermore, we animate the association between Gini coefficient and homicide rate per country using the new version of gganimate.

Introduction

One of the main messages of the Chapter ‘The Gap Instinct’ of the book Factfulness is that there is no justification of the ‘we’ and ‘them’ classification of countries anymore, because ‘they’ have converged towards the same levels in key indicators such as life expectancy, child mortality, births per female. The difference between countries is, hence, not as many imagine it to be: there is less inequality and no real gap. While reading, I became curious about the following: what if countries became more equal, but simultaneously inequality within countries became bigger? This was also indirectly a Disqus comment by F. Weidemann to the post Factfulness: Building Gapminder Income Mountains. Aim of the present post is to investigate this hypothesis using the Gapminder data by calculating Gini coefficients. Furthermore, we use the country specific Gini coefficients to investigate the association with the number of homicides in the country.
