Description

Applying new statistical methods to the sparse evidence from the 19th and 18th centuries, Lindert and Williamson explore American incomes since the 1600s to investigate whether modern economic growth inevitably drives up inequality, and whether inequality favors or disfavors growth. Their topics include colonial incomes on the eve of the revolution, losing the lead: the cost of revolution and independence, unequal economic growth 1800-60, the greatest leveling of all time, and rising inequality once more since the 1970s.
