Spatial Inequality and Development

Ravi Kanbur and Anthony J. Venables

Abstract

Drawing on data from 25 countries from all regions of the world, this book addresses questions that have become very important in recent years, as the spatial dimensions of inequality have begun to attract considerable policy interest; what is spatial inequality? Why does it matter? And what should be the policy response to it? In China, Russia, India, Mexico, and South Africa, as well as in most other developing and transition economies, spatial and regional inequality – of economic activity, incomes, and social indicators – is on the increase.

Keywords: inequality, spatial models, developing economies, spatial inequality, globalization, regional economics, transition economies, regional inequality, social indicators
