    Abstract: This research paper performs a review of the most recent literature about the topic of economic growth, inequality poverty and violence in Colombia. The survey explores some of the characteristics, connections and realities which have been documented in the existing literature on the incidence that those variables may have on violence dynamics. Based on observed trends for the last fifty years, it is performed an geo-referenced exercise on the different effects that poverty, geographical localization of violent groups, and production of illegal crops may exert on the high levels of violence experienced by some regions in the country. It is presented also an empirical examination of the incidence that productive factors, violence and inequality may entail to economic growth. It is fount evidence for the hypothesis according to which the prevailing socioeconomic characteristics of every region has affected the economic growth dynamics. Thus, it is proven that productive factors and violence have effects on national economic growth.
