dc.description.abstractIn this project, we rely on another data source, namely the International Financial Statistics (IFS) to empirically examine the convergence hypothesis. We first estimate the share of global income accruing to ten percentiles and twenty percentiles of the global population, defined in terms of national per capita income. We then use those shares to estimate the values of the two inequality indices – the Gini coefficient and the Theil index.en_US
