Milanović, Branko
Income distribution.; Economic development.
"The data strongly support the hypothesis that countries with more unequal distribution of factor income redistribute more in favor of the poor-- even when the analysis controls for older people's share in total population (that is, for pension transfers). But the evidence on the median voter hypothesis is inconclusive even if middle-income groups gain more (or lose less) through redistribution in countries where initial (factor) income distribution is more unequal"--Cover.
