Flattening the Kuznets Curve: The Consequences for Income Distribution of Development Strategy, Government Intervention, Income and the Rate of Growth
The relationship between growth and equity has been a disputed issue at least since Simon Kuznets  described it as U-shaped. Kuznets 's hypoth~sis that as per capita income rises income distribution would first become less equal and then more equal has been supported by a large array of empirical studies (e.g.: Bacha , Ahluwalia , Chenery et al. , Adelman and Morris , Cline , Paukert . As a result, there are only a few propositions in economics which have wider acceptance.
