In the past few years, one of the most misunderstood concepts is income disparity. Income inequality issues are now a concern for the public. However, it was heightened by the recession in 2008-09, resulting in consequences for the corporate sector, the Occupy Wall Street movement, Covid-19 pandemic and a myriad of other events. This book analyzed how income disparity is rising with higher income distribution margins witnessed among the highest earners. This book has thirteen chapters, eliminating the introductory overview chapter, on income disparity, poverty, and economic well-being. These chapters were authored by academics who publish articles on these issues on a regular basis. The literature on these issues is substantial, and research interest in these topics has a long history. Furthermore, it is fairly unusual for academics' viewpoints on these subjects to disagree. In light of this, the subjects of the articles may best be regarded as representing the contributors' different viewpoints. Graduate students and professional researchers will also find these guides an excellent contribution to supplemental teaching in economic fields, especially labor economics, macroeconomics, and economic policies.

This book offers a unique opportunity that focuses on key issues in emerging economies. Whilst economic growth is crucial for these economies tackling inequalities, fairness and human right related issues is key to growth and prosperity. Addressing fiscal and social policies that enhance equalities and economic growth is key for enriching debates around these issues.
The book contains interesting insights into the new economies after the two years of effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Emerging economies are highly impactful in the continuous growth of the global economy. Increasing the organizational footprint allows for diversification and expansion of the business. This position will only heighten in significance in the future and as a result, any thorough study of global inequality trends must include rising economies. This book examines trends of inequality and associated obstacles that exist in developing economies. Starting with a brief synopsis of these trends followed by a deep dive into the key causes of inequality. Each chapter is carefully curated with an examination of the characteristics and drawbacks of underlying institutional contexts combined with the key policy challenges that emerging economies must address to improve income distribution and inequality.
This book explores the different dimensions, as well as the causes of income inequality in emerging countries, with a particular focus on the case of Turkey. The various issues addressed, from job satisfaction to the position of financial markets, including health issues and the impacts of migratory phenomena, make it a reference for anyone interested in understanding the mechanisms of inequality and their consequences on development processes.
This book outlines pathways that rising nations may follow to restore their power to act and improve people's living standards in the long run. Markets, according to the prevailing economic theory, are vital engines of prosperity and poverty eradication. Financial markets and capital flight may penalize policy efforts aimed at achieving a more equitable income distribution or increasing public investment. The book addresses these concerns by examining major economic underpinnings and providing possible development plans. As a result, it is a must-read for policymakers and practitioners striving to combat global poverty, as well as economists and students interested in gaining a better knowledge of emerging economics, poverty, and financial economics.
Growing inequality is now a global megatrend. Unlike other megatrends, which benefit some stakeholders and harm others, in the long run inequality harms everyone. In the aftermath of the pandemic and against the backdrop of rising geopolitical tensions, inequality is becoming a harder challenge. Reducing it is a unique opportunity to improve the state of affairs for future generations. For this reason this volume is both very important and timely.
