The objective of this study is to study the dynamics of the wealth distribution over the path of economic development. More specifically, this chapter is interested in distinguishing between changes that seem to be country specific and characteristics shared by all countries. A historical account of the evolution of the wealth distribution in developed countries is interesting in itself, but it can also hold implications for countries that are currently in an early stage of development or in transition. The data used originate from the taxation of wealth and estates.

Keywords:   wealth concentration and distribution, inequality, income distribution, Denmark, Norway, Sweden
