Growth, Inequality, and Poverty: Prospects for Pro-Poor Economic Development

By Anthony Shorrocks; Rolph Van Der Hoeven | Go to book overview

Finally, as in many other studies, the analysis here is limited to a consumption approach to poverty and inequality. Poverty is now widely recognized as multidimensional; in theory and policy, as well as in research. Inequality on the other hand is still primarily studied in its income dimension, so that we know relatively little about the determinants of non-income dimensions of inequality, presenting another area for further research.
