Abstract

This paper attempts to explain the concept of pro-poor growth, and argues that it represents a major departure from the “trickle-down” phenomenon. It proposes a new indicator—the pro-poor growth index—that measures the degree to which growth can be considered to be pro-poor. The new indicator is used to analyze the nature of economic growth in three countries, namely, Lao PDR, Thailand and Korea.
