Inequality in Big Cities

Geoff Riley

8th December 2014

Large cities are more unequal than the nations that host them, according to research by Kristian Behrens and Frederic Robert-Nicoud, published in the December 2014 issue of the Economic Journal. For example, income inequality in New York is considerably higher than the US average and similar to that of Rwanda or Costa Rica.
