Who was getting the highest share of the tiny pie? : Robust analysis of poverty dynamics and its decomposition by Ethiopian socioeconomic groups in the period of 1995 - 2000
AbstractThe general distribution of benefit was skewed to major urban centers, educated individuals, employee and individuals headed by formal employee and employers. But in terms of income the economic environment was very effective in avoiding the destitution among the most impoverished but not to rise the over all income among the poor. The economic environment in period 1995 to 2000 seems to discourage the risk takers and failed to improve the welfare of those better off poor. So if better distribution was strong side of this period; inability to raise incomes and discouraged risk taking behavior were the main short comings.
