WTID : Pienso que un gran trabajo…

Thomas Piketty en la pág 33 de “El Capital en el siglo XXI” y al realizar explicaciones metodológicas y de acceso (y elaboración) de datos, señala la formación, por la acción coordinada de alrededor de 30 investigadores del mundo entero, de la World Top Incomes Database (WTID) . En Google, hoy, la WTID es la primera referencia, su acceso es público y muy, muy, muy claro. Pienso que han hecho un gran trabajo y que esto es una buena noticia. Adjunto -copiar y pegar- la referencia a la vez que adjunto la URL.

The World Top Incomes Database – WTID

Presented for the first time in January 2011 during the conference by T. Atkinson and T. Piketty given at PSE within the G-MonD, the World Top Incomes Database (WTID) has since experienced growing success.
Built to accompany the publishing of the two books Top Incomes over the XXth Century (2007, Oxford University Press) and Top Incomes : a Global Perspective (2010, Oxford University Press), the World Top Incomes Database offers the most comprehensive set of historical series on high-income inequality available so far. It is managed by Facundo Alvaredo, Tony Atkinson, Thomas Piketty and Emmanuel Saez in cooperation with dozen of researchers all around the world. Currently, the WTID covers around 30 countries, 40 more being in progress.
In 2013, Thomas Piketty has published the Capital in the XXIst century largely based on datas from the WTID; this book has since then met a tremendous succes all around the world and is now translated in 25 languages.
The results presented in thees books and the website have considerably renewed our knowledge of the long run dynamics of inequality. In particular, they radically question Kuznets’ optimistic hypothesis on the interplay between economic development and the distribution of income.
