Abstract

The Kuznets inverted-U hypothesis has been a source of debate in development economics for years. Most of the recent studies on the subject have been panel studies. In this paper, the author re-considers the possibility of testing the Kuznets hypothesis in a cross-sectional study. The results suggest that the Kuznets hypothesis does hold. However, there are a number of qualifications about the research presented which must be considered.
