Poverty, inequality and the distribution of income in the Group of 20
This paper provides evidence that supports the claim that the absolute number of people in poverty has begun to fall, notwithstanding global population growth, for the first time in the history of the statistics. Moreover we can now picture how narrowing inter-country inequality has outweighed widening national inequality in some countries, so that global inequality has apparently begun to narrow.
