The (two-parameter) lognormal distribution has its genesis in the Law of Proportionate Effect, which predicts lognormality among a population of individuals each of whose income faces the same odds of growing or shrinking by any proportionate rate; the lognormal basically derives from a process of equality of proportionate growth opportunity and deviations from lognormality may indicate the absence of such opportunity.
