As of the past century, the analysis and the graphical representation of inequality play a very important role in economics. In the literature, several curves have been proposed and developed to simplify the description of inequality. The aim of this paper is a review and a comparison of the most known inequality curves, evaluating the features of each, with a particular focus on interpretation.
