How to Achieve Inclusive Growth

Rising inequality and widespread poverty, social unrest and polarization, gender and ethnic disparities, declining social mobility, economic fragility, unbalanced growth due to technology and globalization, and existential danger from climate change are urgent global concerns. These issues are intertwined and require a holistic framework. A new book by the IMF presents a unified plan for combatting these economic and social disparities. The CGD invites you to the launch of this book on How to Achieve Inclusive Growth published by Oxford University Press, followed by a discussion with a distinguished panel.
