This chapter highlights the fundamental principles that form inequality. It cites Martin Rein and S. M. Miller's Standards of Income Redistribution and outlines their interpretation of the standards of equality: one-hundred-percentism; the social minimum; equalization of lifetime income profiles; mobility; economic inclusion; income shares; lowering the ceiling; avoidance of income and wealth crystallization; and international yardsticks. It sets out the essential ingredients of a Principle of Inequality Measurement and enumerates the Measurement's basic elements. It explains how these elements underlie a study of equality and inequality along the interpretations given by Rein and Miller.
