MEDIA REVIEWS

'Empirical evidence shows that economic growth has a varying impact on poverty reduction. Poverty falls less with growth when the distribution of income worsens than when it remains unchanged or becomes more progressive. Understanding the distributional consequences of growth and how they are affected by poverty, as exemplified in this book, is therefore essential to the analysis of development.' - Francois Bourguignon, Vice-President and Chief Economist, The World Bank

'The detailed case studies in this excellent volume, from Africa, Asia and Latin America, will prove useful to researchers as they debate the best methods for analysing pro-poor growth and to policy-makers as they debate alternative policy packages to get pro-poor growth.' - Ravi Kanbur, T. H. Lee Professor of World Affairs, Cornell University

'Pro-poor growth lies at the heart of successful development strategies. By dissecting the distributional impact of alternative policies, this book provides an invaluable guide to understanding the key ingredients of a pro-poor growth programme.' - Anthony Shorrocks, Director, World Institute for Development Economics Research, United Nations University

'...the book is not only relevant to policy makers but is also of high academic interest and can be recommended as a textbook for students and a practical guide for pro-poor growth researchers and professionals.' - Tobias Knedlik, African Development Perspectives Yearbook
