报告简介

Recent research has highlighted a negative impact of inequality on economic growth. Prof. Breunig and his colleague re-evaluated the hypothesis focusing on both inequality and poverty and their interaction. Interestingly, they found that when they account for both inequality and poverty, the negative effect of inequality on growth appears to be concentrated amongst countries with high poverty. This would argue for policies targeted towards alleviating poverty rather than policies about redistribution.
