How did the world's poorest fare in the 1990s?
World Bank, Development Research Group, Poverty and Human Resources, 2000 - Social Science - 30 pages
Between 1987 and 1998, the incidence of poverty fell in Asia and the Middle East and North Africa, changed little in Latin America and Sub-Saharan Africa, and rose in Eastern Europe and Central Asia. Too little economic growth in the poorest countries and persistent inequalities (in income and other measures) are the main reasons for the disappointing rate of poverty reduction.
