Working paper: Non-tradeables and inclusive growth

Why we should care about non-tradeable sectors, if our prime concern is inclusive growth and structural transformation in low-income countries?


Stevan Lee, Enrico Vanino

This working paper does not question the general premise that really significant growth requires structural transformation in low-income countries, nor that export-oriented industries of some sort are normally the drivers of rapid growth. However, it shows how non-tradeable sectors are really important for jobs and as such are fundamental to inclusive growth.
