The authors discuss recent empirical research on how globalization has affected
income inequality in developing countries. They begin with a discussion of conceptual
issues regarding the measurement of globalization and inequality. Next, they present
empirical evidence on the evolution of globalization and inequality in several
developing countries during the 1980s and 1990s. The authors then examine the channels
through which globalization may have affected inequality, discussing theory and
evidence in parallel. They conclude with directions for future research.
