Why has the development debate amongst academia and mainstream development institutions swung so sharply from growth to redistribution? Dr Lant Pritchett, Research Director of the RISE Programme and fellow at the London School of Economics, argues that economic growth is far more important for poverty reduction than targeted programs, and has five graphs to prove it, and to help illuminate our thinking on growth and development.
