Abstract

This paper examines the relationship between trade uncertainty and income inequality. In
countries where only a small share of the population is educated, an increase in trade
uncertainty is associated with a significant increase in income inequality. As education of the
population increases the relationship between trade uncertainty and income inequality becomes
more muted. Trade uncertainty has no significant effect on income inequality in countries that
are world leaders in education. Developing countries that want to reduce income inequality
arising from trade uncertainty should therefore consider further improving their education
system.
