Income inequality means some people get large portionwhile others get a very small portion of total income.Many economists believe in globalization as it has acommanding role during last thirty-five years in economic phenomenon by enlargingtrade volume, investment and financial flow dramatically. But many economists recalcitratedthe globalization as it became the cause of increasing inequality during thisperiod. A question arises here that is there any relationship betweenglobalization and inequality? If yes then of what type? Is that relationshipjustifiable? It occurs either between or within the nations?ObjectivesØ To identify the relationship betweenglobalization and inequalityØ To examine the income distribution amongcountriesØ To study the impact of globalization on LDCs Literature ReviewBhagwati (1999) observed that developed countries opposedgreater integration because of rising inequality and connoted political effectsin their economies.Inequality has been increased between and within nations inan impressive manner joust because of globalization. It has put the poor ofLDCs in the position of secondary importance while deserted the poorest (Mazur2000).

Hisviews bring up globalization as the process of increasing communicationbetween people of different nations as well as less valuation of politicalsocial and geographical constraints.Deolalikar (2002) observed that economic growth is directlyproportionalto poverty reduction and inversely proportional to income inequality.

She intimated to give priority to humandevelopment on income distribution in development program.Hussain (2009) found the positive relationship betweenglobalization andtrade liberalization. He suggested that if Pakistan wants to lessen theincome inequity, it ought to welcome the foreign investors.
