State of the Art: Personelle Verteilung und Wirtschaftskrisen

Chapter
Part of the Forschung und Praxis an der FHWien der WKW book series (FPGHW)

Zusammenfassung

Die wissenschaftliche Diskussion in Bezug auf die personelle Einkommensverteilung hat ungleich mehr Gehör gefunden als jene über die funktionale Einkommensverteilung. Als unumstritten gilt mittlerweile die Tatsache, dass die Einkommenskonzentration in den letzten Jahrzehnten zugenommen hat (Aiginger und Guger, 2014; Piketty und Saez, 2007; Piketty, 2007b, 2014; Corneo, 2015; Bönke et al., 2015). Betrachtet man Ansätze, die die steigende Einkommenskonzentration als Erklärung für die ”Great Recession“ diskutieren, wurde am ausführlichsten die ”Rajan-Hypothese“ diskutiert. Rajan (2010) geht davon aus, dass untere und mittlere Bevölkerungsschichten ihren relativen Einkommensrückgang, der aus der steigenden personellen Einkommenskonzentration resultiert, durch fallende Sparquoten und steigende Kreditfinanzierung ausgeglichen haben.
