Abstract: Bumann and Lensink (2016) suggest that the impact of financial liberalization on inequality is conditioned by financial development. Besides presenting a theoretical model that explains the underlying channels, they report empirical results in which capital account liberalisation (as a relatively narrow measure of financial liberalisation) only tends to lower income inequality if the level of financial depth is high enough.
