Abstract

Examines the change in poverty and inequality in Lima, Peru between 1985-86 and 1990. The data employed are from the 1985-86 and 1990 Living Standards Measurement Surveys. The results are presented in the context of the "unorthodox' macroeconomic policies which were undertaken between those years by the Peruvian government. The paper presents a descriptive account of poverty and living conditions in Lima, and discusses some of the implications of the findings for social investment programs. -from Authors
