Summary: Vietnam's development since 1985 provides important lessons for economic and social policy. Among the world's 40 poorest countries in 1985, Vietnam has since had the fastest growth rate. This volume examines various aspects of Vietnam's transition in 1992-93. Chapter 1 focuses in particular on the effect different policies have on the poor. Chapter 2 discusses poverty and inequality in the early reform period. Chapter 3 analyzes how to raise the income of the rural poor, in particular with regard to agriculture. Chapter 4 focuses on the link between poverty and the lack of infrastructure, using the Vietnam Living Standards Survey. Chapter 5 discusses the nonfarm household enterprises in Vietnam. Chapter 6 studies the private transfers in Vietnam. Chapter 7 investigates the Vietnam's recent trends in school enrollment. Chapter 8 examines how effective private health care providers are in assisting to improve access to health care. Chapter 9 attempts to find out if Vietnam will grow out of malnutrition. Chapter 10 focuses on the effect of income on marital fertility, and also looks at the bearing of son preference on fertility outcomes.
