Innovation and inequality (Master thesis)

Τσιαχτσίρας, Γεώργιος

In this project we use cross-country panel data to explore the relationship of patenting on income inequality. We find positive and significant correlation between innovation and top income inequality. We use several measures of innovation like the number of patents, proxies for the number of patents and quality measures. We apply also different measures of income inequality for robustness. We confirm the existence of a creative destruction effect by using lags of our quality measures of innovation. Next we apply GMM method to treat endogeneity. Finally we interpret our results and formulate our concerns.
