On the Earliest Economic Growth and Income Inequality; or Modified Old Philosophical, Forgotten or Ignored, Study Reconsidered and Developed
Existing economic literature provides contradictory or insufficient explanations of relation between income inequality and economic growth. I propose that the reason is that the authors fail to consider fundamental forces which have given occasion to the variables and historical background of the issue. My analysis is focused on studying causes of the earliest income inequality and economic growth accompanied by inequality. I find that external power exercised by slave owners is force which has given occasion to inequality and growth. This finding provides fundamentally different understanding of the issue.
