Abstract The relationship between income inequality and long-run economic growth has gained a growing attention in economic research for over decades. This study employed advanced time series techniques to examine the existence of an inverted U-shaped long-run relationship between income inequality and economic growth, using long-span time series data for the United States between the periods 1917–2012. The concepts of summability, balancedness and co-summability was advanced to analyze nonlinear long-run relations among stochastic processes. The empirical results find no evidence in support of nonlinear long-run (inverted U-shaped) relationship for the US, but findings from a vocal set of economists lends strong support and is the basis for the conclusions drawn by this study.
