Effects of devaluation on income distribution

Author

Listed:
  • Mohsen Bahmani-Oskooee

Abstract

Few studies in the literature have argued that inflationary effects of devaluation redistribute income from workers to producers. By using cross-sectional data from 24 countries, this paper provides an empirical support for the theoretical arguements that indeed, devaluations have unequalizing effects on income distribution.
