''The Impact of Economic Globalization on Income Distribution: Empirical Evidence in China''
( 2008, Vol. 4 No.35 )
This study investigates the impact of economic globalization, as characterized by increasing international trade and foreign direct investment (FDI) flows, on income distribution in China. The Gini coefficients - the conventional measure of income inequality - are used in this study and the empirical investigation is conducted within the unit root and cointegration framework. The empirical results show that economic globalization tends to improve income inequality in China. Therefore, the worsening of income inequality in China must be caused by other factors.
