The Hidden Inequality in Socialism
By David R. Henderson
Robert M. McNab

Tamás Rózsás

This article appeared in the Winter 2005 issue of The Independent Review


Abstract

In recent years, researchers on transition economies have concluded that income inequality increased in the former socialist countries of eastern Europe and central Asia despite the liberalization of political and economic life. This judgment, however, places too much credence in the data reported by socialist planners and underestimates the cumulative effect of the myriad inequalities present under socialism.
