Economic growth and income distribution: what economists say
This paper reviews the literature on the interplay between growth and personal income distribution. After reviewing some major contributions, it concludes that the empirical approach is still lacking in explaining some crucial questions related to the dynamics and other distinguishing features of the income distribution, both at world and country level. It concludes with some insights for developing theoretical models able to account for the richness and complexity of the topic.
