Interrelation among Economic Growth, Income Inequality, and Fiscal Performance: Evidence from Anglo-Saxon Countries

Abstract: The interrelation among economic growth, income inequality, and fiscal performance is very complex. The objective of this paper is to analyze the dynamic interrelations among these variables using struc¬tural VAR models and to examine transmission channels among them. The empirical analysis is imple¬mented for the UK, the USA, and Canada, using the longest possible consistently measured compa¬rable data on income inequality. The obtained results show that inequality has a negative effect on growth in the case of the UK while the effect is positive for the USA and Canada. An increase in in¬equality worsens fiscal performance for all the considered countries.
