En este artículo se estudia la relación entre ciclo económico y desigualdad a través de las regiones en España en el periodo 2003-2011. Los resultados muestran que la desigualdad presenta un marcado comportamiento cíclico: en el periodo expansivo (2003-2007) la desigualdad y la polarización disminuye, mientras que en la fase recesiva (2008-2011) existe un aumento en la desigualdad. También se ha observado que ha aumentado la intensidad de la pobreza. A nivel regional se nota que aquellas regiones con menor PIB per cápita presentan mayores incrementos en la desigualdad a causa de la crisis, con lo cual las brechas en bienestar entre regiones crecen considerablemente. This article analyzes the relationship between economic cycle and inequality in the Spanish regions in the period 2003-2011. The results indicate that inequality presents a clearly cyclical behavior: During the expansionary phase (2003-2007) the inequality and polarization decrease meanwhile during the recessionary phase (2008-2011) a clear increase of inequality has occurred. Also the increase of poverty has been observed. At a regional level, these regions with lower GDP per capita experience higher increases of inequality as a consequence of the crisis, so the welfare gaps between regions becomes larger.
