China continuously increases its globalization involvement, while in the same time rising income inequality levels can be observed. Income inequality with its wide spread of potential harms such as higher criminal rate, negative economic growth impact and political instability is an issue politicians should be well aware of. International studies show significant relationships between globalization and income inequality. We also know about this connection in Chinese inter-provincial income. However, provinces differ greatly, both in terms of income inequality as well as in their international activities. So far the impact on intra-provincial income inequality remained unclear, while they are tremendously important. This study used provincial panel data and based a principal component analysis on it. I found that economic globalization is associated with a negative impact on intra-provincial income inequality in China. Additionally, social globalization in the form of international communication has a positive impact on it. (Less)
