Growth and the Time Dimension of Inequalities

Part of the International Economic Association Series book series (IEA)


From among the many forms of interconnection between growth and distribution, this paper deals with the concept and measurement of the time-dimension of inequalities and the role which the rate of growth plays in determining the time-dimension of inequalities and thus the overall extent of inequality. In analysing this interconnection, the existing inequalities can be viewed from a new perspective which may also be helpful in diminishing the incidence of conflict between growth and distributional objectives.
