Growth with Equity: "Double Click" For High Economic Growth and Quick Poverty Reduction: The Case Of Vietnam (Country Overview Paper 8) (Draft)



Viet Nam has achieved high economic growth and quick poverty reduction at the same time using a new development model that the author refers to as a "double click" development alternative. This paper seeks to examine this alternative by looking back at the history of the country, and the approaches towards reducing poverty and encouraging growth, and attempts to draw lessons for other developing countries.
