E-mail Print PDF


On October 31, 2014 a public debate was held on "How to reduce economic inequality in Macedonia". The debate was organized by the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung, Skopje Office, the Institute for Social Democracy "Progress" and Olof Palme International Center.

Official figures show that Macedonia has the greatest injustice in the distribution of income in the region. The value of the Gini index of the country in 2010 was 43.6 (latest year with available data) and it is significantly larger than the values ​​of the Gini indexes in other countries: Albania (34.5 in 2008), Bosnia and Herzegovina (36 2 in 2007), Bulgaria (28.2 in 2007), Croatia (33.7 in 2009), Montenegro (28.6 in 2010), Romania (27.4 in 2011) and Serbia (29 6 in 2010). The distribution of income in Macedonia can be compared only with Georgia (42.1 in 2010), but is seriously approaching Latin American countries. Additionally, the unfairness in the distribution of income in the country is not decreasing over the years, but the opposite is happening. The gap between the rich and the rest of the population is growing. It should be expected that the unfairness in the distribution of income has worsened further in the country since 2010.

The purpose of the debate was to answer the following two questions:

1.       What are the mechanisms that affect the increasing unfairness in the distribution of income in Macedonia?

2.       What should be done to get to a fairer distribution of income in the Macedonian society?

Guests / speakers were Professor. Dr. Dragan Tevdovski, Faculty of Economics - Skopje, Professor. Dr. Maja Gerovska-Mitte, Institute of Social Work and Social Policy, Faculty of Philosophy - Skopje and Zdravko Saveski, leftist movement "Solidarity".
