Spatial Inequality in Chile

Abstract

Research on regional economic growth in Chile has focused mainly on convergence (absolute vs. conditional) and the speed toward the steady state, and less on what such convergence entails in terms of welfare, poverty reduction, and inequality. This is a major limitation. This paper presents an econometric analysis of convergence in regional income levels and its quantitative relationship with the decline in poverty levels and inequality. Moreover, none of the papers address the important question of what are the determinants of the speed of convergence and whether economic policies can affect it
