Making work pay in Bangladesh; employment, growth, and poverty reduction.


Making work pay in Bangladesh; employment, growth, and poverty reduction.

Ed. by Pierella Paci and Marcin Sasin.

The World Bank


72 pages




This slim volume examines the relationship between poverty and employment in developing countries, providing an in-depth understanding of how labor markets influence both economic growth and poverty levels. Using Bangladesh as an example, Paci and Sasin (The World Bank) show how the link between generating income and reducing poverty is not as clear-cut as one would think, and other variables such as rural and urban living conditions, women and children in the labor force and self-employment must be considered. Designed for use by policymakers, the statistical data here is presented to inspire further analysis of these economic trends.
