Item description for Perspectives on Growth and Poverty by Rolph Van Der Hoeven...
The relationship between growth and poverty lies at the heart of development economics. The importance of this topic, and the continuing controversies surrounding it, prompted UNU/WIDER to organize a major academic conference on growth and poverty in May 2001. Its purpose was to review current thinking on the issue, to stimulate research and to allow researchers from various backgrounds to exchange ideas on future policy directions. Perspectives on Growth and Poverty contains an important selection of the conference papers dealing with institutional and policy questions, sectoral issues and individual country experiences.
