This paper investigates the impact of globalisation on cross-country inequality using a large panel dataset. The findings reveal that location and capital are the main determinants of inequality; trade intensity and foreign direct investment make only a small contribution (approximately 4%). The relative contributions of trade and foreign direct investment to inequality have changed little over time and have certainly not increased at the same rate as the rise in global trade and investment activity. Hence, globalisation does not emerge as a significant factor in driving cross-country inequality. Differences emerge when countries are grouped by relative income, but the main findings persist.
