Linkages between Pro-Poor Growth, Social Programmes and Labour Market: The Recent Brazilian Experience (in English) - Kakwani, Nanak, Neri, Marcelo Cortes, Hyun, H. Son

Sobre o paper: 

This paper analyzes the relationship between growth patterns, poverty and inequality in Brazil during its globalization process, focusing on the role played by the labour market and social programs. From a methodological point of view, the paper makes two contributions to the literature. One contribution is the proposal of a new measure of pro-poor growth, which links growth rates in mean income and in income inequality. The other contribution is a decomposition methodology that explores linkages between three dimensions: growth patterns, labor market performances, and social policies. The proposed methodologies are then applied to the Brazilian National Household Survey (PNAD) covering the period 1995-2004. The analysis based on Brazilian experience demonstrates that government social policies can play an important role in protecting the poor from external shocks, which occur more frequently in the era of globalization.
