(2015) 'Growth is Dead, Long Live Growth: The Quality of Economic Growth and Why it Matters'
Eradicating extreme poverty from the face of the earth once and for all is set to be a central goal of the emerging post-2015 development agenda. Without a rapid transition of the world economy to a low-carbon growth path over the next few decades, this ambitious goal will remain elusive. A better understanding of the potential distributional implications of different conceivable pathways to low carbon development is required to ensure the social acceptability and political viability of low carbon policy reforms.
