Abstract: 
This paper summarises some of the key findings and policy recommendations of the latest OECD report on income inequality - "In It Together: Why Less Inequality Benefits All". In particular, the paper presents new findings regarding the trade-off between inequality and growth, as well as with regard to the impact of the economic crisis and of female employment on the distribution of income and the distribution of wealth. Key policy recommendations derived from these findings are the need to promote employment and good quality jobs, to further improve female participation, to invest in education and skills, and to foster well-designed redistribution policies.
