This article tries to explain the relationship between economic inequality in Java and outer Java, also the inter-island shipping policy in Indonesia until the 1960s by using the historical methods. This study proves that the inequality had occurred since the colonial era when the Dutch colonial government focused on developing infrastructure on Java as the center of its government. When withdrawn again, inequality has occurred since pre-colonial times. The inter-island shipping policy that places Java as the center of shipping has increasingly encouraged economic inequality.
Key words: Economic Inequality / Inter-island Shipping / Historical Methods / Java and Outer Java / Colonial Era
