Sources of income inequality in rural villages in Solomon Islands

Sources of income inequality in rural villages in Solomon Islands

Development Issues Canberra ( 5): 113-126

An examination is presented to determine the sources and extent of inequality of income distribution in rural villages in Solomon Islands. The villages used are those studied in a previous project (Jones et al 1988). They were chosen as a cross-section of villages at different stages of commercialization, thereby allowing some generalizations to be made about the extent to which commercialization, particularly through cash cropping, is accompanied by worsening income distribution.
