Abstract

The objective of this paper is to apply hypotheses derived from theories of legitimacy and distributive justice to patterns of stability in income distribution in Poland. The hypotheses specify conditions under which income differences become legitimated. The question about the conditions of legitimacy of the differences is especially interesting in the Polish context, given steady increase in the amount of inequality after 1989. Data from Polish General Social Survey are then used to see if the hypotheses are consistent with empirical observation.
