MDGs are collective targets, based on global trends of 1970s & 1980s

They are hardest to achieve for countries with low initial HD

They represent ends, not means.

Good servants, bad masters

Storyline since 1990

  • Progress has continued
  • But it is slowing down
  • Much of it bypasses the poor; inequalities

Is it inequality, stupid?

slide21

Inequality in OECD countries

Gini coefficients for late 1980s to late 2000s

Up: 17 countries

Same: 3 countries

Down: 2 countries

slide22

High inequalities have a price – slower growth, more instability, less efficiency.

  • They hurt everyone, also those at top.
  • The way the economic pie is cut has a bearing on its size.
  • What matters is not only how affluent a country is but also how equal it is.
  • There is such thing as ‘too much inequality’.

  • Nuanced ‘No’

      • Michael Novak – No! And, well, yes.
      • Garry Kasparov – Yes, but…
      • Bernard-Henri Levy – Certainly. Or does it?
slide25
‘It depends’
      • John Gray – It depends.
      • John Bogle – It all depends.
  • ‘Yes’
      • Kay Hymowitz – Yes, too often.
      • Michael Walzer – Of course it does.
      • Robert Reich – We’d better not know.
