Persistent and high levels of absolute poverty are the most obvious feature of many of the poorest countries, and yet many economists continue to disagree about how they can best be overcome. Considering the prevailing distribution of income in these countries, sustained economic growth may not be feasible or desirable.
"Income Distribution in Less Developed Countries" bridges the gap between the statistical and theoretical literature on income distribution, and helps to clarify the underlying trends and to provide recommendations for policies that might provide growth with equity.
." . . the book examines comprehensively and carefully a (the?) major dimension of development."
." . . an enormously readable book on income distribution in LDCs and it will remain obligatory reading for research students working on income distribution."
