O que é este blog?

Este blog trata basicamente de ideias, se possível inteligentes, para pessoas inteligentes. Ele também se ocupa de ideias aplicadas à política, em especial à política econômica. Ele constitui uma tentativa de manter um pensamento crítico e independente sobre livros, sobre questões culturais em geral, focando numa discussão bem informada sobre temas de relações internacionais e de política externa do Brasil.

Brasil: o mito da queda da desigualdade, segundo estudo abafado pelo governo

Top Incomes in Brazil (Souza et al.) 

Top incomes in Brazil: Preliminary results by Pedro H. G. F. Souza, Marcelo Medeiros and Fabio Avila de Castro published by SSRN (10/2014).
"We present the preliminary results of our analysis of top incomes in Brazil from 2006 to 2012. We describe the evolution of the income shares of the top 1% and the top 5% and estimate a 'corrected' Gini coefficient. The data used comes from personal income tax returns, national accounts and household surveys. The results show that the levels of income inequality in Brazil are higher than those estimated using household surveys, and, contrary to what surveys show, inequality did not fall over this period: the current trend is of stability."

Abstract:     
We present the preliminary results of our analysis of top incomes in Brazil from 2006 to 2012. We describe the evolution of the income shares of the top 1% and the top 5% and estimate a "corrected" Gini coefficient. The data used comes from personal income tax returns, national accounts and household surveys. The results show that the levels of income inequality in Brazil are higher than those estimated using household surveys, and, contrary to what these surveys show, inequality did not fall over this period: the current trend is of stability.
