Studies regarding income distribution in the United States and how trends have changed over the years have revealed a number of key issues.

In Table average levels of per capita national income are given separately for low, middle and high income countries of the world. Table reveals that, a large development gap exists between low income countries (with $ 1, PPP or less) and high income developed countries (with $ 12, PPP or above) in   Trade liberalization seems to have increased growth and income in developing countries over the past thirty years, through lower prices, firm-level efficiency gains and improved access to foreign inputs.
