It involves both supply-side and demand-side expansions, and does not necessarily involve a change in the rate of inflation.3

This has happened for South Korea, China, and Botswana, and also for India, but much more slowly. Brazil, Bolivia, Nigeria, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, in contrast, are all falling farther behind.

The top 1 percent increased their share to nearly 20 percent. Similar levels of concentration were seen in the 1920s, but for many decades in between, the United States was characterized by less inequality, with lower shares for the top income earners.Source: Thomas Pickett and Emmanuel Saez U.S. incomes series,
16 Figure 17.8: The Relation Between Life Expectancy and Income, with Area Proportional to Population At very low levels of income per head, increases in per capita income are associated with steep increases in life expectancy. After a middle income level of per capita GDP is reached, however, increases in income are associated with much more modest increases in life expectancy, and at highincomes the relationship flattens out.Source: World Bank, World Development Indicators Database, 2013
