About the product

Recent mainstream analyzI of changes in income distribution over the post World War II period have concluded that income inequality within countries tends to be stable; that there is no strong association between growth and inequality; and that poverty is best reduced through growth-oriented, rather than distributive policies. This publication challenges this view. It discusses past and recent trends in income distribution,the recent rise in inequality and poverty reduction.
