Wealth Inequality: China and India

Published By: India China Institute, The New School, New York | Published Date: May, 25 , 2010

This paper examines wealth distribution in China and India. As China and India have witnessed significant growth rates between 1980 and 2000s, how this growth has been distributed amongst its citizens has generated renewed interest. It is now well documented that both China and India have witnessed significant increases in income/consumption inequality. There is, however, little work done on wealth inequality in these two countries, and, to our knowledge, there has been no work done to compare the two countries on wealth dimension. This paper is an attempt to correct this gap.
