ECONOMIC GROWTH POVERTY, INEQUALITY AND SOCIAL TRANSFERS IN THE EUROPEAN UNION

[[[separator]]]

The monography is a comprehensive study describing the relationships between economic growth, social transfers, inequality, and poverty in the EU member states. The analyses examine the changes in economic growth, social transfers, poverty, and inequality (or, more precisely, income inequality), as well as the impact of economic growth and social transfers on reductions in poverty and income inequality between the poor and the non-poor in 27 EU member states from 2005 to 2017. In the theoretical part of the study, various measures of analysed of the aforementioned phenomena and processes are proposed. A growth pattern analysis is performed to investigate the question of whether economic growth is pro-poor based on the poverty equivalent growth rate. Different aspects of poverty are examined using the  multi-dimensional approach. This approach to poverty measurement is focused on the effects of the coincidence of monetary poverty and non-monetary poverty (material deprivation). To analyse the inequalities between the poor and the non-poor, measures with the properties necessary for this type of analysis are used, including Zenga's inequality indices and the income quintile share ratio. The analysis of the impact of social transfers on poverty reduction is based on the measurement of the differences between poverty indices before and after social transfers. The pro-poorness of social transfers is assessed by examining the share of social transfers in income, and the correctness of their targeting. In the empirical part of the study, authors aim to answer the question whether an increase in economic growth translates into an increase in the income of the population. Moreover, they estimate how and to what extent is economic growth related to poverty and how beneficial it is for the poor. They also check how and to what extent does economic growth affect income inequality. Finally, they examine if social transfers are favourable to the poor by checking how and to what extent do social transfers affect the relative income of the poor, alleviate inequality between the poor and the non-poor, and reduce poverty.
