Economic Management, Income Distribution, and Poverty in Jamaica


Providing an empirical look at the Jamaican economy, this careful study examines the impact of the IMF approach to economic management in the 1980s and compares it to the non-IMF policies of the 1970s. Demonstrating that Jamaica's income is among the most unequally distributed in the world, the author explores how the policies of various governments affected income distribution, focusing on whether non-IMF policies had a different effect than IMF policies.
