Great Gatsby and the Global South. Intergenerational mobility, income inequality, and development

Open access book
Diding Sakri, Andy Sumner, Arief Anshory Yusuf - United Nations University World Institute for Development Economics Research (UNU-WIDER)
In the Global South economic mobility across generations or intergenerational economic mobility is in and of itself an important topic for research with consequences for policy. It concerns the 'stickiness' or otherwise of inequality because mobility is concerned with the extent to which children's economic outcomes are dependent on their parents' economic outcomes. This open access book presents a new estimate for a developing country, namely Indonesia; it discusses the 'Great Gatsby Curve' and highlights the different positions of developed and developing countries
