Abstract

We analyze the evolution of intercountry income inequality and its decomposition between and within four geographical clusters and their fifteen regions from 1960 to 1990 by applying the income-weighted entropy measure. Our analysis assesses the contribution of income inequality within and between the geographical clusters and their regions to three global trends: strong divergence between 1960 and 1968, slow convergence between 1969 and 1983, and stagnation between 1984 and 1990.
