Vietnam Inequality Report 2005
Department for International Development (UK) – published report commissioned for the Vietnam National Assembly
Fritzen, Scott, Brassard C.
This paper explores the tensions and opportunities surrounding Vietnam’s attempt to reach the goals of rapid economic growth while also being a Socialist “fair society.” It does so by looking at the phenomenon of inequality in the process of economic transition and development.
The ultimate goal of this paper is to inform government policy choices – to examine how the actions of the government can have an impact, in a market economy context, on the achievement of equitable, balanced development.
