An index of economic well-being for Canada by Lars Osberg( Book )

The objective of this paper is to develop an index of economic well-being for Canada for 1971-97 using a framework originally laid out by Lars Osberg (1985). The four components of well-being taken into account in this approach are explained: effective per-capita consumption flows and flows of household production & other unmarked goods & services; net societal accumulation of stocks of productive resources; poverty and inequality as indicated by the Gini index, and depth & incidence of poverty; and indicators of insecurity, particularly economic insecurity from unemployment, ill health, single parent poverty, and poverty in old age. Estimates of the overall index and each component are presented and the index is compared with other measures of economic welfare such as per-capita gross domestic product

Can increasing inequality be a steady state? by Lars Osberg( file )
2 editions published in 2014 in Undetermined and English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Historically, discussions of income inequality have emphasised cross-sectional comparisons of levels of inequality of income. These comparisons have been used to argue that countries with more inequality are less healthy, less democratic, more crime-infested, less happy, less mobile and less equal in economic opportunity, but such comparisons implicitly presume that current levels of inequality are steady state outcomes. However, the income distribution can only remain stable if the growth rate of income is equal at all percentiles of the distribution. This paper compares long-run levels of real income growth at the very top, and for the bottom 90% and bottom 99% in the United States, Canada and Australia to illustrate the uniqueness of the post-WWII period of balanced growth (and consequent stability in the income distribution). The 'new normal' of the United States, Canada and Australia is 'unbalanced' growth - specifically, over the last thirty years the incomes of the top 1% have grown significantly more rapidly than those of everyone else. The paper asks if auto-equilibrating market mechanisms will spontaneously equalise income growth rates and stabilise inequality. It concludes that the more likely scenario is continued unbalanced income growth. This, in turn, implies, on the economic side, consumption and savings flows which accumulate to changed stocks of indebtedness, financial fragility, and periodic macroeconomic crises; and, on the social side, to increasing inequality of opportunity and political influence. Greater economic and socio-political instabilities are therefore the most likely consequence of increasing income inequality over time
Beyond GDP : measuring economic well-being in Canada and the Provinces, 1981-2010 by Lars Osberg( file )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
This report presents new estimates of the Index of Economic Well-being (IEWB) and its four domains (consumption flows, stocks of wealth, economic equality and economic security) for Canada and the provinces for the 1981-2010 period. It finds that the IEWB advanced at a 0.78 per cent average annual growth rate over the period, below the 1.32 per cent growth for GDP per capita. Both the consumption and wealth domains experienced solid advances over the period, but these developments were offset by declines in the equality and economic security domains. The recent recession caused a decline in the IEWB for Canada, driven by declines in wealth and economic security
