Bu çalışma, finansal gelişme ile gelir eşitsizliği arasındaki ilişkiyi araştırma amacı taşır. Ayrıca, ekonomik büyüme ve ticari dışa açıklığı gelir eşitsizliğinin potansiyel belirleyicileri olarak ampirik modele dahil eder. ARDL sınır testi eşbütünleşme yaklaşımı kullanılarak değişkenler arasında bir uzun dönem ilişkisi bulunmuştur. Aynı zamanda finansal gelişme ile gelir eşitsizliği arasında negatif bir ilişki tespit edilmiştir. Bu, finansal gelişmenin söz konusu dönemde gelir eşitsizliğini azalttığı anlamına gelir. Sonuçlar, vektör hata düzeltme modeli (VHDM) yaklaşımı vasıtasıyla finansal gelişmeden gelir eşitsizliğine doğru işleyen bir uzun dönem Granger nedenselliğini göstermektedir. Sonuçlar, Türkiye ekonomisi için bazı politika çıkarımları sunabilmektedir. 

This study aims at examining the relationship between financial development and income inequality in case of Turkey. In addition, this study incorporates economic growth and trade openness to the empirical model as potantial determinants of income inequality. Using ARDL bounds testing approach to cointegration, we find a long run relationship between the variables. We also find a negative relationsip between financial development and income inequality in the long run implying that financial devolopment decreases income inequality over the period. The results show that there exists a long run Granger causality running from financial development to income inequality by applying the VECM approach. The results can present important policy implications for Turkish economy.
