Mark Stelzner. 2013. “Income Inequality in New York City and Philadelphia in the 1860s”

  • In this paper, I present new income tax data for New York City and Philadelphia for the 1860s.  Despite limitations, this data offers a glimpse at the income shares of the top 1, 0.1, and 0.01 percent of the population in the two premier US cities during an important period in our economic history – a glimpse previously not possible.
