This study re-examines the existence of an inverted U-shaped relationship between economic growth and income inequality using advanced time series techniques, which enable analyzing nonlinear long-run relationships among stochastic processes. Applying the concept of summability, balancedness, and co-summability on a sample of 55 countries from 1980 to 2010, we find no evidence in support of the nonlinear long-run relationship economic growth and income inequality.
