Income Inequality and Economic Growth Revisited. A Note


  • Mª. Ángeles Caraballo
  • Carlos Dabús
  • Fernando Delbianco


The relationship between income inequality and economic growth is estimated using dynamic panel estimation on a sample covering 112 emerging countries for the period 1980–2014. The results show that income inequality has a positive influence on economic growth for richer countries, in line with the classic theory, and a negative effect for poorer countries, as argued by the political economy approach.
