TRACKING ECONOMIC INEQUALITIES AT THE TOP Over the past decades, the increase in economic inequalities was largely driven by a rise in income and wealth accruing to the top of the distribution. However, household surveys, the data sources traditionally used to observe inequality dynamics, do not properly capture these evolutions. Description For courses on economic development A complete, balanced introduction to the theory, issues, and latest research. Economic Development,Twelfth Edition—the leading textbook in this field—provides students with a complete and balanced introduction to the requisite theory, driving policy issues, and latest and Smith take a policy-oriented approach, presenting. This paper investigates the effects of inequality in health on economic growth in low and middle income countries. The empirical part of the paper uses an original cross-national panel data set. erature in several ways. First, it updates and enlarges the evidence base on aver-age malnutrition and socioeconomic inequality in malnutrition using the most recent Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) data from 47 develop ing countries. The inclusion of such a large number of countries makes it possible to obtain insights into the.
The outcome distribution, y h , can be expressed as a function of these two factors, c h and e h, respectively, and an unobserved factor u h , such that y h = f (c h, e h, u h) , and the overall inequality is computed over the distribution y h . Thus, the measure of inequality. This distance puzzle proved robust to several ad hoc versions of the model using data for for a large sample of countries. The introduction of an "augmented" barrier to trade function removes the paradox, yielding a decline in the estimate of the elasticity of trade to distance of about 11 percent over the year period for the. measures of those industries that are characterised by a large share of market producers, leaving aside those activities where non-market producers dominate in many OECD countries. 2 These activities pose specific problems of productivity measurement, due to the.
