Beyond tradeoffs : market reforms and equitable growth in Latin America( )

12 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays in this book propose new ways of reducing inequality, not by growth-inhibiting transfers and regulations, but by enhancing efficiency--eliminating consumption subsidies for the wealthy, increasing the productivity of the poor, and shifting to a more labor-and-skill-demanding growth path ... [They] draw on discussions at a conference sponsored by the IDB and the MacArthur Foundation, titled "Inequality-Reducing Growth in Latin America," held in Washington, D.C. in January 1997"--Foreword
Education, productivity, and inequality : the East African natural experiment by John B Knight( Book )

14 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Developing countries spend tens of billions of dollars each year on education. In the face of severe competition for scarce resources, the effectiveness and distribution of these expenditures merit careful examination. The need for universal primary education is no longer questioned: the key policy issue is at the secondary level. Does expanding the secondary system make good economic sense for a developing country? Do better-educated workers contribute to economic development, or are they merely being trained for minimal jobs that will waste their skills? Does educational expansion increase the inequality of income by adding to the number of well-paid workers or decrease it by reducing the earnings premium that education can command? Does reducing inequality of access to secondary education increase intergenerational mobility? In this book the authors seek to answer these and other questions

Opportunity foregone : education in Brazil by Nancy, Ed Birdsall( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fundamental changes in Brazilian economic policy in the mid-1990s have dramatically slowed inflation and set the stage for sustained growth. These gains provide the opportunity to turn to other social and economic problems overshadowed for years by the country's macroeconomic problems. Among the most important issues on the agenda is education. Opportunity Foregone: Education in Brazil offers a frank and thorough assessment of the country's educational performance and the resulting social costs. It identifies necessary reforms and the barriers to reform. The book's 18 studies examine a wide variety of key issues regarding the economics of education in Brazil

The political economy of formal sector pay and employment in developing countries by Arup Banerji( )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

March 1995 Policymakers concerned about migration to high-income countries must take into account the political economy of the labor market. Labor market pathologies, like macroeconomic mismanagement, can be extremely costly -- severely constraining growth of output and employment and increasing inequality. Domestic labor market outcomes influence the direction and magnitude of the flow of international migration. When wages are low and jobs are scarce, workers tend to migrate to environments where jobs are available at higher wages. But as labor demand grows, a labor-exporting country may become a net labor importer. Such a migration transition -- already much in evidence in East and Southeast Asian countries and beginning for skilled workers in India -- is analogous to the demographic transition. The process of political economy described by Banerji, Campos, and Sabot affects the level and growth of wages and of formal sector employment. So it is important for policymakers concerned about migration to high-income countries to take it into account. An efficient, flexible, responsive labor market contributes to growth by creating an appropriate economic environment. In this respect, labor policy is like macroeconomic and trade policy. Unlike the accumulation of physical and human capital and technical progress, a well-functioning labor market is not itself a source of economic growth. Yet labor market pathologies, like macroeconomic mismanagement, can be extremely costly, severely constraining growth of output and employment and increasing inequality. Similarly, failure to adequately address the labor-market aspects of policy reform can result in the failure of other dimensions of reform. The smooth functioning of the labor market feeds on itself, enhancing the credibility of both workers and the elite. Conversely, poor labor market performance can also be self-reinforcing. Attempts to reform the labor market are likely to be hampered by the lack of credibility of both labor and the elite. The payoff on labor reform can be high for both groups. The challenge is to find mechanisms whereby the credibility of both groups can be bolstered. This paper -- a product of the Office of the Vice President, Development Economics -- is a background paper for World Development Report 1995 on labor. Versions of the paper were presented at a World Bank seminar and to the 1994 Northeast Universities Development Conference at Yale University

Why low inequality spurs growth : savings and investment by the poor by Nancy Birdsall( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper discusses the ways in which macroeconomic developments can put stress on banks, and in extreme cases lead to banking crises. There are many ways in which this can occur, and no specific mechanism is endorsed. These macroeconomic causes of bank vulnerability and crisis have important implications for regulatory regimes, and for macroeconomic policy itself. Much of the discussion emphasizes the need to set monetary policy with an eye on the state of the domestic banking system
