Abstract

Recent development literature has placed priority on poverty reduction, and on possible growth enhancement from a more equal distribution of assets and income. At the same time, empirical work consistently shows that economic growth is no more than distribution neutral. In that context, this study explores the relationship among growth, inequality, and poverty, and considers policy that might be used to make growth more equitable.
