Critical Review 7 (1):61-79 (1993)
Is there truth to the widespread belief that the ig8os saw a redistribution of income upward, from the poor and the middle class to the rich? While the eighties witnessed an abundance of new and high?paying jobs and a sharp redistribution of taxes upward, income inequality did increase. But this was not because the poor lost ground but because the rich gained more ground than the poor. In reality, then, the eighties were not only good for the rich and the middle class but met Rawlsian standards of ?justice as fairness.?
