By Tom Jasak

Abstract

Cilj ovog rada je analiza i usporedba raširenosti ekonomske nejednakosti na svjetskoj razini, odnosno detaljniji uvid u stanje ekonomske nejednakosti u Hrvatskoj, te komparacija Europske unije i Hrvatske u ovome području. Prikazani rezultati pokazuju neravnomjernost u raspodjeli dohotka diljem svijeta, uz drastične razlike između pojedinih zemalja. Ekonomska nejednakost se, kako je utvrđeno, stabilizira u omjeru razvijenih i nerazvijenih zemalja ali je i dalje visoka. Problem današnjice je rast nejednakosti unutar država, pa je temeljitije pokazan na primjeru Hrvatske i njezinoj usporedbi s Europskom unijom. Zaključak je usmjeren na nužnost globalne i nacionalne integrirane politike ublažavanja ekonomskih nejednakosti. Put kojim hrvatska politika, kao i mnoge druge, treba ići predstavlja reforme i mjere koje moraju biti poduzete ako se želi onemogućiti stvaranje visokih ekonomskih nejednakosti, uz ublažavanje istih.The aim of this paper is to analyze and compare the extent of economic inequality on a global level, and to get a more detailed insight into the condition of economic inequality in Croatia, as well as a comparison of the EU and Croatian in this area. The present results show unevenness in the distribution of income around the world, with drastic differences between countries. Economic inequality is, as we know it, stabilized by the ratio of developed and underdeveloped countries, but is still high. The nowadays problem is the growth of inequality within countries, and this is thoroughly demonstrated on the example of Croatia and its comparison with the European Union. The conclusion, that came out, is linked to the need for global and national integrated policy to reduce economic inequality. The way that Croatian politics, as well as many others, should go represents reform and measures that must be taken if we want disable procreation of high inequality, and have impact to reduce economic inequality
