- What has been the evolution of poverty and equity during the recent
- How have poor countries fared on the Millennium Development
- What role does wealth inequality play in the level and efficiency
of investment and, hence, in economic growth?

Development to evaluate the state of knowledge on the relationship

migration in alleviating this inequity.
Written by prominent analysts in their fields, Equity and Growth
in a Globalizing World seeks to create a better understanding of
the interactions between globalization, growth, and different
dimensions of equity and poverty, and to inform policy makers of
possible policy levers to address central concerns in the debates in
