‘Pro-poor’ growth and children in developing countries: the case of Vietnam

Abstract:
Economists often claim that economic growth in developing countries leads to a better quality of life for virtually everyone in those countries. Presumably this claim includes children as well as adults. The extent to which economic growth improves children’s welfare may depend on the nature of that growth. This has led some economists to investigate ‘pro-poor growth’, that is, economic growth that is particularly favourable to the well-being of poor people, including children.
