Zusammenfassung

Der vorliegende Beitrag beschäftigt sich mit der Frage, warum die vergleichsweise progressive Fiskal- und Sozialpolitik im Post-Apartheid-Südafrika nicht zu einem deutlichen Rückgang von Einkommensungleichheiten führte: Den Berechnungen des Statistik-Amtes zu Folge, vergrößerte sich der Gini-Koeffizient von 0,56 im Jahr 1995 über 0,57 im Jahr 2000 bis auf 0,72 im Zeitraum 2005/2006. Auch innerhalb der verschiedenen „Rassen“ vergrößerte sich – gemäß dieser Berechnungen – die Einkommensungleichheit.
