This chapter is less optimistic about the future for income inequality. It discusses four key factors that may make progress towards greater income equality increasingly challenging: the intergenerational transmission of advantage; wealth and inheritance; demographic change; and environmental sustainability. The chapter specifically includes pressures on public finances and the need to reduce carbon emissions in the face of climate change.
