Abstract (2. Language): 
This article considers an analytical survey of the literature about the interactions between income distribution and economic growth with an emphasis to development issues. It also evaluates recent trends in income distribution. Our study does not suggests any systematic effect of growth on income distribution in any direction. On the other hand the distribution of income may affect economic growth through several mechanisms. Empirical work provides significant evidence for developing countries in that direction
Abstract (Original Language): 
Bu makale gelir dağılımı ile ekonomik büyüme arasındaki karşılıklı ilişkiler üzerine mevcut literatürü kalkınma açısından analitik olarak incelemektedir. Ayrıca yakın geçmişteki gelir dağılımı trendlerini değerlendirmektedir. Çalışmamız büyümenin gelir dağılımı üzerinde her hangi bir yönde sistemli etkisi olmadığını göstermektedir. Buna karşın gelir dağılımı birçok mekanizma aracılığı ile ekonomik büyümeyi etkileyebilmektedir. Ampirik çalışma gelişmekte olan ülkeler için bu yönde anlamlı kanıtlar sunmaktadır.
