Text version: Duration of growth spells versus net income inequality, 1960 to 2010

The chart shows that most countries experience shorter growth spells, from 5 to 20 years in duration, which are associated with higher inequality—particularly concentrated in the range of 38 to 55 on the Gini index, which measures inequality (0 is no equality, 100 is full inequality).
