Abstract

The main purpose of this paper is to show an existing level from which economic transformation will lead to income inequality alleviation. It makes use of the Panel Smooth Transmission Regression (PSTR) of González et al. (2005). Applied to panel of 19 African countries from 1960 to 2012, findings suggest that economic transformation will lead to income inequality alleviation only if it reaches the level of 10.8%. Below this level, 1% of economic transformation will increase income inequality about 1.3892%, while it will be reduced about 0.8183% above the level of 10.08%. African countries have therefore, to accelerate their economic transformation process to reduce the income inequality and enhance its economic growth by making it inclusive, durable and fair.
