Para algunos, la distribución del ingreso es el primer ejemplo de una ley de potencia, reglaempírica según la cual una variable aleatoria alcanza valores altos con una probabilidadbaja y valores bajos con una alta probabilidad. En este artículo se verifica si la distribucióndel ingreso de los colombianos más ricos se ajusta a una ley de potencia. Igualmente,considerando el proceso de Yule (1925), y en general, la teoría de los procesosestocásticos, se formula un modelo teórico cuyo objetivo es explicar por qué el ingreso sedistribuye de acuerdo con una ley de potencia. La esencia del modelo es que la riquezapresenta un efecto acumulativo, por tanto, a mayor nivel de ingreso, mayor probabilidadde incrementarlo.
