October 2, 2011
In this small paper author makes some comments on the relation between Income Distribution and the Government Debt as a percentage of GDP. It is estimated through a panel data model that optimum Income Distribution takes place at a critical level of Government Debt as a percentage of GDP. Further, it is noted that Economic Growth, Investment and Entrepreneurial activities play a significant role towards a more equal Income Distribution. Finally, the size of the GDP per se does not matter in the improvement of Income Distribution. Our sample covers European Countries during the period 2004 - 2008. Panel data regression analysis will be used based on the Eviews software package.
