Abstract

Este estudo pretende avaliar a dinâmica recente do desenvolvimento regional no Brasil. Para tanto, parte-se da premissa que a queda recente nos indicadores de desigualdade de renda estaduais e municipais não denota um processo de convergência de renda. A adoção do conceito de polarização desenvolvido em Anderson, Linton & Leo (2012), demonstra que, ao dividir o Brasil nos subconjuntos Norte/Nordeste e Resto do País, há uma maior identificação dos Estados e Municípios dentro de cada grupo (pobres com pobres e ricos com ricos), e um aumento da distância entre eles. Neste sentido, a redução da desigualdade total reflete um processo de divergência de renda.
