Inequality, Polarization and Poverty Summary

Inequality, Polarization and Poverty: Advances in Distributional Analysis by Satya R. Chakravarty

This book provides a synthesis of some recent issues and an up-to-date treatment of some of the major important issues in distributional analysis that I have covered in my previous book Ethical Social Index Numbers, which was widely accepted by students, teachers, researchers and practitioners in the area. Wide coverage of on-going and advanced topics and their analytical, articulate and authoritative p- sentation make the book theoretically and methodologically quite contemporary and inclusive, and highly responsive to the practical problems of recent concern. Since many countries of the world are still characterized by high levels of income inequality, Chap. 1 analyzes the problems of income inequality measurement in detail. Poverty alleviation is an overriding goal of development and social policy. To formulate antipoverty policies, research on poverty has mostly focused on inco- based indices. In view of this, a substantive analysis of income-based poverty has been presented in Chap. 2. The subject of Chap. 3 is people's perception about income inequality in terms of deprivation. Since polarization is of current concern to analysts and social decisi- makers, a discussion on polarization is presented in Chap. 4.

Inequality, Polarization and Poverty Reviews

From the reviews:

"The book is clearly written, well organized and succinct. The extended bibliography complied at the end of the book is a very useful reference as it is quite complete and up to date ... . surveys several papers that have not appeared in print and are not easily accessible. ... I enjoyed reading the book ... . I recommend this excellent book to anyone who is interested in the broad research of distributional analysis, whether a beginner in learning the literature or an experienced researcher." (Buhong Zheng, Journal of Economic Inequality, Vol. 9, 2011)
