Abstract
In this paper we examine the relationship between income inequality and economic development according to the Kuznets inverted-U hypothesis. The data used are collected from 146 countries, they cover period 1970 – 2011 and are obtained from the World Bank database, the OECD database and Penn World Table. We used three different datasets – time series for Argentina and Brazil, cross-country data and panel data for the whole world. We found evidence of inverted-U shape curve in all estimations.
