'This book is certainly a great reference for anyone interested in development economics not only because of the specific issues that it covers, but also in terms of the general approaches that it presents. Economists and researchers studying development economics and migration studies will find this collection of works of great usefulness and interest.' - Christopher Bajada, Economic Record During the growth process inequality may rise or decline, and the change in the level of inequality may, in turn, affect growth. An increase in inequality in one place and better prospects of growth and earnings elsewhere can trigger migration. As a result of these close affecting links between factors, each of the eighteen studies - a mix of both theoretical and empirical - is concerned with at least two of these issues, and is classified into one of three general parts in accordance with the theme that is mostly emphasised.
