This paper examines the relationship between countries’ bilateral trade with the United States
that is not due to gravity (non-gravity trade) and the distribution of income within countries. In
countries where only a small share of the population are educated, an increase in non-gravity
trade is associated with a significant increase in income inequality. As education of the
population increases the correlation between non-gravity trade and income inequality becomes
smaller. Non-gravity trade has no significant effect on income inequality in countries that are
world leaders in education.
