Simon Toussaint


Welcome to my website! I am a PhD researcher at the Utrecht School of Economics. My research focuses on the dynamics of wealth concentration; in particular, I work on reconstructing the long-run accumulation and distribution of wealth in the Netherlands, as well as measuring and interpreting recent trends in top wealth concentration globally. I am an external researcher at Statistics Netherlands, and have contributed research to a Dutch government report on the wealth distribution. I am a fellow of the World Inequality Database.
