Review from previous edition: "The Oxford Handbook of Economic Inequality assembles a star-studded cast and, with an Editors' Introduction, 26 distinct chapters, and over 700 pages of text, it delivers a massive compilation. The objective is to provide 'an overview and evaluation of the
current state of international research on economic inequality' and 'to add new insights and open up novel perspectives for further research.' And it succeeds."
--Lars Osberg, Review of Income and Wealth
About the Author
Wiemer Salverda initiated the LoWER network in 1995 to bring together Europe's leading scholars on low pay and earnings inequality. With the help of the European Community's research funding, the network has been a prolific organizer of meetings and a fertile producer of publications. Moving from the University of Groningen's Economics Faculty he joined the Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Labour Studies of the University of Amsterdam in 2000, where he helped build an extensive portfolio of international research and research cooperation. He provides expert advice on low pay, wage inequality, the minimum wage, youth labour, older workers, employment policy, and labour market reform to the EU, OECD, ILO and the British Low Pay Commission. He chairs the Supervisory Board of the international WageIndicator which offers internet surveying of pay in many countries.
