In this analysis for the World Bank, Ambar Narayan and Roy van der Weide et al examine whether persons are destined to remain in the same economic circumstances into which they were born. They look back over a half a century at whether children’s lives are better or worse than their parents’ in different parts of the world. They suggest local, national, and global actions and policies that can help break the cycle of poverty, paving the way for the next generation to realize their potential and improve their lives.
