This chapter shows that the links between economic reforms and growth, poverty, and inequality in both China and India are more complex and ambiguous than are usually made out in the academia as well as in the media. It also comments on the tortuous relation between inequality, conflicts, and the reform process itself.

Keywords:   globalization, poverty, inequality, social discontent, conflicts, reform
