Review of Income and Wealth Virtual Issues

2012 Virtual Issue
On the occasion of the 32nd International Association for Research in Income and Wealth (I.A.R.I.W.) General Conference (Boston, USA, 5-11 August 2012), we have decided to publish a virtual issue of the Review of Income and Wealth consisting of the three most downloaded papers in 2011 via Wiley Online Library and the three most cited papers from ISI Thomson. The downloads list provides a better indication of the current topics that are attracting interest in the academic community. These range from the measurement of intangible capital (Corrado, Hulten, Sichel), and of the informal economy in developing countries (Blades, Ferreira, Lugo) to the growth of earnings inequality in Canada (Lu, Morissette, Schirle). The citations list provides an indication of which papers have had the most lasting impact. These focus on the measurement of inequality and poverty (Buhmann, Rainwater, Schmaus, Smeeding), international comparisons of output and price levels (Summers, Heston) and alternative measures of welfare (Sahn, Stifel).

We also want to commence the official celebration of the Kendrick Prize winners: Olympia Bover for the paper ‘Wealth Inequality and Household Structure: U.S. vs. Spain', published in 2010, pp. 259-290, and Robert E. Lipsey for the paper ‘Measuring the Location of Production in a world of Intangible productive Assets, FDI, and Intrafirm Trade', published in 2010, pp. S99-S110.
