Pro-poor growth explaining the cross-country variation in the growth elasticity of poverty

Pro-poor growth explaining the cross-country variation in the growth elasticity of poverty

International Journal Of Development Issues: 2, 160-176

Purpose - The aim of this paper is to analyse the cross-country variation in the growth elasticity of poverty across a sample of developing countries during the period from 1990 to 2000. Design/methodology/approach - In order to identify variables that may explain the cross-country variation in the growth elasticity of poverty, the paper sets up a theoretical framework. Subsequently, the explanatory power of these variables is tested empirically by panel data econometric analysis.
