Is Inequality Harmful for Growth?

Abstract [en]

Is inequality harmful for growth? We suggest that it is. In a society where distributional conflict is important, political decisions produce economic policies that tax investment and growth promoting activities in order to redistribute income. The paper formulates a theoretical model that captures this idea. The model implications are supported by the evidence. Both historical panel data and post-war cross sectionc indicate a significant and large negative relation between inequality and growth. This relation is only present in democracies.
