The Inclusive Growth and Development Report 2015

IGD_coverThe World Economic Forum has just published “The Inclusive Growth and Development Report 2015.”

The report, which covers 112 economies, seeks to improve our understanding of how countries can use a diverse spectrum of policy incentives and institutional mechanisms to make economic growth more socially inclusive without dampening incentives to work, save and invest.

Six main findings emerge from the analysis:

  1. All countries have room for improvement
  2. It is possible to be pro-inclusiveness and pro-growth at the same time
  3. Fiscal transfers can be helpful – but so can other policies
  4. Effective promotion of social inclusion is no solely a luxury of high-income countries
  5. There are significant regional similarities
  6. The current debate on inequality is unduly narrow and polemical
