Abstract: 
Prepared for the Fethschnft for Hans-Jurgen Krupp, this report examines the role of demographic, economic, and policy-related institutional factors which we term 'income packaging' in accounting for income distribution differences between The Netherlands and seven other OECD countries. These countries have been chosen to represent a range in income inequality and in the nature of their income packaging characteristics. The question addressed is how much of the difference across these nations is due to demography (that is, the age and household structures of The Netherlands), as compared to other factors which determine income packaging?
