We have removed the article Financialisation makes income distribution more unequal from September 2015 after its authors, Karsten Köhler, Alexander Guschanski, and Engelbert Stockhammer, informed us that they have retracted the working paper on which the article’s findings were based. Accuracy is central to the work of British Politics and Politics at LSE; we also appreciate that research is evolving and therefore are committed to acknowledging any problems openly.
Here is authors’ note on the retraction:
The working paper “How does financialisation affect functional income distribution? A theoretical clarification and empirical assessment” has been withdrawn at our request due to a coding error in the programme used to manage the dataset. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
