Increase of income inequality in crisis period applied to Colombian society Inequality is one of the most evident repercussions of unsuccessful or evolving economic systems. Particularly in developing countries the inequality most common measures sign the problematic with the higher levels around the world – With exception of some successful systems that deal with this inconvenient- In the particular case of Colombian society the problem needs to be addressed – been one of the most unequal countries of its region- However, the main goal of this thesis is study the relationship and possible correlation between increase of inequality in crisis periods of the economic cycle. Particularly analyzing the Colombian society situation supported by the collected official data of that republic and also taking into account the effect that a period of time defined characteristics have had in other countries’ economies. This work will follow a logical sequence to analyze the problem. Starting from the basics and going through the more complex parts of the problem. This study intends to show an overview of the Republic of Colombia in different fields working as a diagnostic, studying the consequences that an economic crisis period can bring -stressing the fact that a crisis period is very likely to worsen the inequality problem- and exalting economic potential and strengths, such as, its geographical position, the increase in the number of people being educated and better disposition on the part of the government to achieve peace, with which it is hoped to improve internal conditions of the country and therefore improve the economic conditions of its inhabitants. Under this standpoint this work is intended to make a reference on how this problematic could be attacked in a -vulnerable situation (crisis) - for different subgroups present in any society, such as, race minorities, low qualified workers, women, rural populations, among others. Highlighting its weaknesses and great existing opportunity differences in this nation. This is intended to be achieved through initiatives that will allow recovering the countryside, improving the situation in different forgotten economic sectors and working on the disparity that some groups suffer. Making emphasis in education and government investment for developing sectors.
