Via Justin Wolfers, a chart from the new Piketty/Saez hotness, The Top 1 Percent in International and Historical Perspective.
The magnitude of cuts to the top marginal rate correlate pretty nicely with the top 1% taking a bigger piece of the national income share.
Also interesting to see that post-60s tax cuts were a policy implemented pretty much across the board within the advanced capitalist world.
And, interesting that Holland became more equal even as it implemented big tax cuts.
