Global economic growth has declined since 2011 and is continuing to deteriorate in 2016. The answer to the question of how to move economies forward remains elusive yet vital.

This perceptive report from the World Economic Forum presents an approach to understanding the links between economic development and the extent to which the population as a whole shares in that progress. getAbstract recommends this noteworthy study to those interested in an alternative view of how to measure and promote inclusive economic growth.

- Why income inequality is contributing to the slowdown in worldwide economic growth,
- How countries rank in an index of inclusive development, and
