Abstract:This volume discusses several policy challenges facing countries to achieve and sustain inclusive growth. The volume is based on the proceedings of a conference co‐organised by the OECD Economics Department and the World Bank on 24‐25 March 2011, which brought together academics and practitioners from advanced and emerging‐market economies, as well as developing countries. While discussions on strong growth typically focus on the pace of economic expansion and the associated improvements in the population's living standards, those on inclusiveness also delve into the patterns of growth and on how its benefits are shared among the different social groups.
