A prelude to 'building back better' – how well have we tackled inequalities since the last recession

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

This article looks at three areas. First, we look at overall trends in a key indicator of living standards: relative poverty. Secondly, we look at the intersection between poverty and equality groups. Thirdly we look at income inequality comparisons with a wider group of countries to assess our impact against some international comparators. Facing another deep recession, and with the Scottish Government talking very prominently about wellbeing and economic renewal, what can the last ten years tell us about the probability of seeing such a change if we follow a similar approach.
