This article builds on the work of Facundo Alvaredo, Tony Atkinson, Fabien Dell, Chiaki Moriguchi, Brian Nolan, Thomas Piketty, Jesper Roine, Emmanuel Saez, Wiemer Salverda, Michael Veall, and Daniel Waldenström, who have painstakingly used taxation statistics and other historical data to estimate top income shares for the countries analysed herein. In addition, I am grateful to Tony Atkinson, Ian Irvine, Thomas Piketty, Emmanuel Saez and Daniel Waldenström for valuable comments on earlier drafts. Elena Varganova provided outstanding research assistance. The dataset of top income shares may be downloaded from http://econrsss.anu.edu.au/~aleigh/.
