- 166 Downloads
While the thesis that economic growth reduces poverty has existed for some time, it has only been in the last few years that a large empirical literature has arisen on the nature of the relationship between poverty and growth. These studies have attempted to measure the sensitivity of poverty to growth, i.e., the “growth elasticity of poverty”, to ask the question—do he poor in particular, as opposed to all segments of society, share the benefits of economic growth proportionally? Virtually all such studies are based on cross-country data.
