Using a prototype human capital based growth model without borrowing restrictions and government intervention, we study the dynamic evolution of aggregate output and income inequality. We show how even barebones models can yield some testable implications about the growth-inequality relation that may square nicely with the empirical reality. We also provide some useful speculations about this relation over different stages of economic development.
