The World Bank Report
“Fair Progress? Economic Mobility across Generations around the World”

December 17, 2018

EIEF, Rome

EIEF hosted the presentation of the World Bank Report “Fair Progress? Economic Mobility across Generations around the World” on intergenerational mobility.
The report is a joint product of the Research Group and the Poverty and Equity Global Practice of the World Bank and analyses global trends and patterns in economic mobility, using the new Global Database on Intergenerational Mobility (GDIM). The GDIM has unprecedented coverage: for the first time empirical evidence on mobility is available for almost 150 countries, representative of 96 percent of the world’s population. The data suggest that mobility and development go hand in hand. Both absolute and relative mobility are lower in low- and middle-income countries than in high-income countries. Progress towards more economic mobility is slow. Improvements in mobility in the developing world have stalled since the 1960s. Program.

To what extent have the employment prospects of voters influenced their political choices? To what extent has the perception of immigrants as potential new competitors on the domestic labor markets contributed to strengthening populist feelings?
