      This study reviews recent research dealing with relationships between economic growth, income distribution, and poverty. This generally fails to find any systematic pattern of change in income distribution during recent decades—nor does it find any systematic link from fast growth to increasing inequality. The level of initial income inequality is not a robust explanatory factor of growth. The estimates show that inequality of world distribution of income worsened from the beginning of the 19th century to World War II and after that seems to have stabilized or to have grown more slowly.
