12/11/2021 - In the past decades the income gap between rich and poor has widened and social mobility has stagnated in many OECD countries. Most people are concerned about high and increasing inequality and the lack of equal opportunities. A new OECD report looks at how people perceive inequality and social mobility and analyses how people’s views can help design successful inequality-reducing policies.
Does Inequality Matter? How People Perceive Economic Disparities and Social Mobility will be published at 11.00 a.m. Paris time/09.00 a.m. GMT on Thursday 18 November.
Journalists will be allowed advance access to the electronic version of the report, by e-mail and under embargo. In asking to receive the report under embargo, journalists undertake to respect the OECD’s embargo procedures. Requests to receive the report by e-mail under embargo should be sent to email@example.com. The report will be sent under embargo on Wednesday 17 November. To get advance access to OECD reports, complete this short form.
For further information, journalists are invited to contact Spencer Wilson of the OECD’s Media Office (tel: + 33 1 45 24 81 18).
