    Another issue is whether pro-poor judgements should put relatively more emphasis on the impact of growth upon the poorer of the poor. Having formalized the treatment of these issues, the paper describes various ways for checking whether broad classes of ethical judgements will declare a distributional change to be pro-poor.

    Is a pro-growth strategy always the best pro-poor strategy? To address this issue, Lopez provides an empirical evaluation of the impact of a series of pro-growth policies on inequality and headcount poverty. Downloadable (with restrictions)! Average incomes of the poorest quintile rise proportionately with average incomes in a sample of 92 countries spanning the last four decades. This is because the share of income of the poorest quintile does not vary systematically with average income. It also does not vary with many of the policies and institutions that explain growth rates of average incomes.

      If one thinks the only way to help the poor is by taking money from the rich and giving it to the poor, then it is very hard to build a pro-poor policy that is also pro-growth. The book aims to respond to three fundamental questions: (a) what factors explain Tanzania's recent acceleration in economic growth, (b) how well has the accelerated growth translated into reduced poverty, and (c) what needs to be done to sustain growth that is also pro-poor.

When is growth pro-poor? by Aart Kraay Download PDF EPUB FB2

Growth is pro-poor if the poverty measure of interest falls. According to this definition there are three potential sources of pro-poor growth: (1) a high rate of growth of average incomes; (2) a high sensitivity of poverty to growth in average incomes; and (3) a poverty-reducing pattern of growth in relative incomes.

Growth is pro-poor if the poverty measure of interest falls. This implies three potential sources of pro-poor growth: (a) a high rate of growth of average incomes; (b) a high sensitivity of poverty to growth in average incomes; and (c) a poverty-reducing pattern of growth in relative g: book.

This volume analyzes determinants of pro-poor growth in eight countries. It emphasises the role of regional inequality, price and policy reforms as well as political economy issues affecting pro-poor growth at the country level.

It also analyzes the impact of agricultural, labour market policies. Economic growth is an effective indicator for removal poverty and enhances employment so in recent tim e there are many developing countries which focus for improving economic growth.

After the introductory points that follow, there are three main sections. As regards regional growth effects, we conclude that growth was weakly pro-poor in seven of Spain’s 17 regions, it was neither pro-poor nor anti-poor in nine regions, and only weakly anti-poor.

The first draws on the literal meaning of the phrase: growth is pro-poor when the poor benefit disproportionately from it. This criterion is met if the rate of income growth of the poor exceeds the rate of income growth of the non-poor.

Thus, in order for growth to be pro-poor, it must be accompanied by a decrease in inequality. He then analyzes evidence on whether growth is pro-poor, what factors make it more pro-poor (including the role played by both initial inequality and changing inequality), and whether the factors that make the distribution of the gains from growth pro-poor come at a cost to growth.
