Helping the poor, helping the world: inclusiveness and sustainability for a more durable growth

Economic growth is considered a key driver of poverty reduction. Between 1990 and 2010, the global economy grew at an average rate of 2.7 % each year, while the percentage of people living on less than USD 1.25 a day was reduced from 43 % to 21 %. But how much the poor in a given country benefit from growth – which is defined as an increase in the inflation-adjusted value of the goods and services produced by an economy over a given period of time – depends on growth patterns and policies.
