While most cross-country studies find a negative relationship between income inequality and economic growth, studies that use panel data suggest the presence of a positive relationship between inequality and growth. This paper uses a cross-state panel for the United States to assess the relationship between inequality and growth. Using both standard fixed effects and GMM estimations, this paper does not find evidence of a positive relationship between inequality and growth but finds some evidence in support of a negative relationship between inequality and growth. The paper, however, shows that the relationship between inequality and growth is not robust and that small differences in the method used to measure inequality can result in large differences in the estimated relationship between inequality and growth.

Theories of Income Distribution pp Cite as. The Presidential Address of Kuznets  to the American Economic Association in initiated a stream of research on the secular evolution of income distribution with particular interest aroused by a simple empirical law or hypothesis. Although economists have a long-standing tradition of searching for regularities in the functional distribution of income and in life-cycle features of poverty incidence, Kuznets shifted attention to long-run features of the size distribution of income across stable economic units rather than functional groups. In a series of papers, for example [, , ], he developed awareness of a simple U-shaped pattern in some data for size distribution and sought to clarify both the determining processes underlying this pattern and the data deficiencies that constrain attempts to clarify such processes.
This article investigates the dynamic interactions among demographic transition, income distribution, and economic growth. Consistent with empirical evidence we show that fertility and income distribution follow an inverted U-shaped dynamics in the process of economic development. In the first stage fertility increases and income inequality widens, whereas in the second stage fertility declines, income becomes more equally distributed, human capital becomes more abundant, and growth of income per capita takes off.

What this report finds: Income inequality in the United States is suppressing growth in aggregate demand spending by households, businesses, and governments by shifting an ever larger share of income to rich households that save rather than spend. This rise in inequality has been overwhelmingly driven by the failure of pay for typical American workers to keep pace with economywide productivity growth. EPI estimates that rising inequality has slowed growth in aggregate demand by 2 to 4 percentage points of GDP annually in recent years. Why it matters: For decades, the drag on demand growth stemming from rising inequality has been compensated for by other economic and policy developments—notably a long-running decline in interest rates.
