Economic growth and poverty: a tale of two decades
AbstractThe relationship between poverty and economic growth is reexamined using pooled cross section and time series estimates of state level poverty. Empirical evidence is provided for both cash and comprehensive income headcounts and Sen indexes of poverty. Particular emphasis is placed on the differential impacts of growth on poverty in the long economic expansions of the 1980s and 1990s. Contrary to prior work, we find that the long-term effects of growth did not strengthen and may have actually diminished during the 1990s.
