Abstract:     
This paper uses a new comprehensive cross-state panel for the United States over the 1945-2004 period to reassess the relationship between income inequality and economic development. By employing the pooled mean group estimator of Pesaran, Shin, and Smith (1999), it detects a long-run cointegrating association between inequality and development (as well as its squared term). Moreover, their relationship is better characterized by a U shape rather than the inverted-U profile asserted by Kuznets (1955). The evidence is robust to a variety of sensitivity tests.
