Export growth and poverty, Macroabc model with poverty module.
This article was presented at the GEA conference.
Abstract: The objective of this paper is to introduce a combination of a macro
model and a poverty module and then demonstrate how to quantify the
effects of combinations of macro and redistribution policies on the
numbers below the poverty line and their net real income, taking an
increased growth of exports in combination with lower tax rates as an
example. This paper builds on the experience gained in macro model
projects in and for Curaçao, Indonesia, Kenya, EU15, Suriname, the
Netherlands, EU15, Poland and Ethiopia. We present the macroabc model
‘’Curalyse’’ with the poverty module ‘’Antiltax’’ of the small island
of Curaçao and MicromacroSim Kenya as an example. For shareware
model-files and multi-media slideshows explaining some of these
macroabc models and the poverty module MicromacroSim we refer you to
