This article examines Crenshaw's (1992) effort to reinterpret the relationship between political democracy and income inequality through ecological-evolutionary theory. His findings do not contradict the political theory of income inequality. Instead, when entered in a multiple regression, agricultural density controlling for percent of labor force in agriculture is a surrogate for land inequality. The distribution of political power remains the proximal cause of income inequality.
