"Are Incomes Around the World Converging or Diverging? The Prospects for Global Income Inequality"
by Bussolo, Maurizio, Rafael De Hoyos and Denis Medvedev


Abstract
This chapter explores future trends in income distribution to identify households positioned to benefit most and least, and suggests policy interventions to help spread the benefits of the anticipated growth over the next several decades. Building on the demographic and educational trends described in the previous chapter, it explores whether incomes are likely to become more equal across and within countries. It also examines the role of globalization in producing these outcomes, through the lens of microanalysis at the household level.
