FIGUEIREDO, Erik Alencar de  and  ZIEGELMANN, Flávio Augusto. Algumas simulações de efeitos de mobilidade de renda sobre o nível de bem-estar. Rev. Bras. Econ. [online]. 2009, vol.63, n.4, pp.317-328. ISSN 1806-9134.

This study intends to measure the relationship between Brazilian economic welfare and income mobility. To achieve that it was used a model of intertemporal consumption proposed by Gottschalk e Spolaore (2002). This theoretical support allows to evaluate isolated the two sources of mobility: the reversibility and the source independence. The simulations suggest that flexibilizantion of Brazilian social structure, represented by an increase of income mobility, results a positive impact on the economic welfare.

Keywords : Mobilidade de Renda; Bem-Estar Econômico.
