Abstract

Este articulo propone una metodologia para estimar el tiempo y la tasa de crecimiento necesarios para alcanzar un objetivo de pobreza, dada una serie de distribuciones del ingreso y escenarios de crecimiento contrafactuales. La metodologia se puede aplicar a la mayoria de las medidas de pobreza y es ilustrada con datos de Madagascar.
