LP: What’s new in your recent work on the distribution of income and wealth among individuals? Deaton: I'm not entirely sure that's fair. By contrast, during the last three decades the economy has grown much more slowly, and our infrastructure has fallen into grave disrepair.

The concern is that high disposable income inequality (relative to other countries) is strong suggestive evidence that the bottom and middle could be made better off by increasing taxes and transfers. The movement won’t do anything to help the huge middle class, which is losing ground. Henry Ford doubled his employees’ basic wage in 1914, supposedly to enable them to buy Fords. Instead many numbers will satisify the inequality. But the data still corroborates the story of increasing inequality between most Americans and the richest.

Researchers have identified a bizarre, parasitic wasp without wings preserved in 100-million-year-old amber, which seems to borrow parts of its anatomy from a range of other insects but actually belongs to no other family ...
