IMF published this video item, entitled “Promoting an Inclusive Recovery” – below is their description.
Achieving inclusive growth—that is, strong and sustainable economic growth whose benefits are widely shared—is the key policy challenge of our day and thus a fundamental pillar of the IMF’s policy focus in the years ahead. Inequality has been rising in many countries, and large income disparities persist across regions, genders, ethnicities, and generations. The COVID-19 pandemic and economic and financial crises have further exposed these vulnerabilities, while longer-term trends, such as climate change and job-displacing technologies, if left unaddressed, pose serious challenges to inclusive growth. http://ow.ly/UU6f50F6AYe
Kristalina Georgieva, Cristina Duarte, Barry Eichengreen, and Martin Sandbu discuss how to ensure an inclusive recovery.
