In their book on regional inequalities in small nations, Felsenstein and Portnov (2005) state that during a seminar held at Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 1957, Simon Kuznets argued that small nations had had more success than larger ones with distributing the fruits of growth among their inhabitants. In order to make this claim, he compared Scandinavian countries and Switzerland as examples of more equal distribution to nations like France, Germany and even the United States. Along these same lines, the literature on economic development posits that it is logical that larger countries present greater regional inequalities than small ones.
