you have gained information from researchers from the University of Canberra who have calculated the changes in the Gini Index for Australia between March and June 2020.
Their modelling estimates that the Gini Index would have risen in Australia if it had not been for the fiscal policy support that the government implemented during the pandemic.
Question: How do you interpret a rise in the Gini Index? If the Gini Index increases, should policymakers be concerned or relieved, and why?
