This chapter synthesizes main findings from the edited volume Income Inequality: Economic Disparities and the Middle Class in Affluent Countries — and offers guidance for future research. The chapter draws together key substantive findings from this book in each of the five major areas covered: inequality trends; politics; women's employment and income inequality; wealth inequality; and country case studies. The chapter also addresses what has been learned regarding data needs, of which the most central concerns the need for new datasets that integrate income, wealth, and consumption. The chapter concludes by pointing to new and emerging lines of inequality research that would extend the questions and themes explored in this book.

Keywords:   income inequality, integrated datasets, new lines of inquiry, Luxembourg Income Study, Luxembourg Wealth Study
