Reassessing the relationship between inequality and development

Hugo Rojas-Romagosa () and Joseph Francois

CPB Discussion Paper from CPB Netherlands Bureau for Economic Policy Analysis

Abstract: We reassess the empirical relevance of the Kuznets Curve with a new inequality dataset. Using panel data estimations that account for the heterogeneity of inequality observations, we test for both the unconditional and the conditional hypothesis that includes alternative inequality determinants.
