Research question and motivation
During the last decades, many countries have registered an increase in their income inequalities. At the same time, they have witnessed higher incomes, GDP per Capita, and lower poverty rates. However, it is still not clear whether there is a causation between them, or the countries have continued to develop in spite of higher income inequality between households. The aim of this paper is to explore the existence of this trade-off between innovation, economic development and GDP per capita on one hand and income inequality on the other hand.

The results provided by authors are ambiguous. For example, Julia Włodarczyk in her paper “Innovations and income inequalities – a comparative study” concludes that: “In general, higher gross domestic expenditure on R&D as a percentage of GDP tends to increase inequalities, while a higher number of patent applications or a higher value of the Creative Economy Index has an opposite effect”.
At the same time, the paper by Cristiano Antonelli and Agnieszka Gehringer affirms that: “the proper investigation of the relationship between technological change and income inequality requires the recognition that it works both ways”. This thesis might contribute by confirming one of these two parts, or by finding that the answer depends on concrete circumstances. Another meaningful contribution might be finding new positive and negative relationships between income inequality and other indicators.

Předběžná náplň práce
We will use the cross-sectional and time-series data analysis. It is also appropriate to use multi-year averaged data, as in (Antonelli & Gehringer). The same paper suggest using the feasible generalized least squares (FGST) methodology. The methodological basis would be running several regressions and analysing their results.
